Tarrytown rules no fault in deadly manhole accident
The Tarrytown Village Board ruled last night that Department of Public Works Supervisor Scott Weaver is not at fault in a fatal accident involving a manhole that led to the deaths of volunteer firefighters John Kelly and Anthony Ruggiero.
One firefighter was killed trying to save another after he collapsed in the manhole after breathing toxic fumes.
"We are appalled and outraged that they can even give back his job. Was or is he even qualified for this job?" said John Kelly's sister.
Weaver, who was suspended with pay, is free to return back to work on Monday. The village board says it will not be seeking disciplinary action.
Village officials say there will be another meeting about this on Sept. 19.
