On a GoFundMe page, Musick’s daughter, Kaityln, described the events leading to her father’s death and said he died a hero.
“He died helping someone he didn’t even know. He was a firefighter, a husband, a father, a brother, a friend to anyone who needed one, and a proud pappy. He was such a caring man with a big sense of humor," she wrote, also encouraging people to donate to help give her father the funeral he deserves.
The Morning Call reports that the Lehigh County district attorney’s office is involved in the investigation of the incident.
