LODD: Ga. firefighter collapses at crash scene

By FireRescue1 Staff

Duty Death: Lonnie Lee Nutt - [Marietta , Georgia]

MARIETTA, Ga. — Lonnie Lee Nutt, 49, collapsed and died while treating patients at a motor vehicle crash scene Thursday afternoon. Nutt had been a member of the Marietta (Ga.) Fire Department since 1994.

He leaves behind a wife and daughter.

“He fell from what appeared to be a massive heart attack, and they immediately started working him as well as trying to help the patient that was already there,” Scott Tucker, the city’s fire marshal, told WSB radio.

Engineer Nutt also served as an inspector and investigator.

“We had a lot that we depended on him for because he was a very good firefighter,” Tucker said. “He was somebody that was knowledgeable. You could depend on him and he had the expertise to do a lot of things.”
