The Ludington Library is flying its American flag at half-staff today. This is an order from Governor Rick Snyder to honor a longtime Muskegon County Firefighter who died last week after having a heart attack.
Richard Crosby Sr. a 67 yr old responded to a medical call in Casnovia Township Thursday evening. A few hours later after returning home Crosby went into Cardiac arrest. His death is considered in the line of duty because it happened within 24 hours of the call.
Cardiac arrest is the number one cause of death for firefighters.
Along with American flags being flown at half staff today Crosby who spent 44 years serving the community will receive a heroes funeral.
