Two Firefighters Were Critically Injured Doing the Ice Bucket Challenge

Credit: Unknown

Our first really bad injuries have arrived from the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  The marching band at Campbellsville University in Kentucky was doing the ice bucket challenge yesterday, and called the local fire department to make it big and awesome.

They had firefighters go up in the bucket attached to their fire truck, and dump ice water on the entire band.  But apparently they hit some power lines in the process, and wound up getting ELECTROCUTED.

Four firefighters had to be taken to the hospital, and two of them are still in critical condition. 41-year-old Captain Tony Grider, and 22-year-old Simon Quinn.
