CONCORD, N.H.—New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch is directing that flags at state buildings be lowered to half staff to honor a Sandown firefighter who died during a training exercise.
Forty-six-year-old Harold Frey suffered a heart attack during a cold water and ice rescue training session in the Exeter River Jan. 16.
Frey had just left the water at the end of the training exercise when he had trouble breathing and collapsed. Paramedics were unable to revive him and he was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Funeral services for Frey were held Thursday. Lynch ordered the flags lowered on Friday.
