At Deutsche Bank Fire Trial, FDNY Captain Tells of Finding Unconscious Firefighter

An FDNY captain testified Thursday his chilling discovery of an unconscious firefighter who had gone missing in the blinding smoke of the fatal Deutsche Bank fire.

Capt. Matthew Moog described following a limp hose on his hands and knees as his oxygen tank ran low in the desperate search for two missing firefighters.

"I couldn't see much. I was going by feel," said the 25-year FDNY vet.

He then encountered one of the men, firefighter Robert Beddia, lying between two stairwells on the 14th floor of the burning building.
