A rescue squad member and public servant in New Jersey died of a heart attack on Saturday after responding to a wreck that involved his 19-year-old daughter.
According to Lehigh Valley Live, Eskil “Scott” Danielson, 49, of Andover, N.J., responded to a crash on Route 206 around 3 p.m. Saturday. Upon arrival, Danielson learned that his 19-year-old daughter Alycia was one of the crash victims.
