WATCH: Firefighter Michael Curry’s funeral service

SAVANNAH, GA (WSAV/AP) – On Saturday, November 26, 2016 a local firefighter, Michael Curry, was laid to rest. Master Firefighter Curry died of aortic aneurysm on Nov. 19 while preparing to help people who fell in the Savannah River after a ferry boarding platform collapsed.

His casket, draped in an American flag, was carried along a half-mile route from the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist to Savannah Fire headquarters.

Officials sounded the final bell and presented his son and his mother with the flag and Curry’s helmet.
