Original Post:

A Campbellsville firefighter injured in an "ice bucket challenge" has died a month after a power line shocked him and another man.

Campbellsville Fire Chief Kyle Smith says 41-year-old Tony Grider died Saturday. Grider was a captain with the department on Aug. 21. He and 22-year-old firefighter Simon Quinn were on the fire truck's ladder when it got too close to a power line after dumping water on Campbellsville University's marching band in the charity stunt to raise awareness for ALS.

Quinn was released from the hospital Sept. 15.

Two other firefighters were injured, but were released from the hospital
