89-Year-Old Man Dies in Apartment Fire
Sadly, the Bermuda Police Service (BPS) can confirm that the 89-year-old man seriously injured in a fire at a Devonshire apartment building Thursday, 17th March 2022 was subsequently pronounced dead at the hospital Thursday evening.
The Devon Spring Lane resident was extracted from the building by firefighters, who performed CPR on the senior citizen at the scene – but ultimately, he succumbed to his injuries.
Official identification of the deceased is anticipated in due course, pending next of kin notification.
The site was held overnight until the Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service Fire Investigator and the BPS Forensic Support Unit processed it this morning (Friday, 18th March).
The BPS is also aware of videos circulating of the incident, with one in particular showing the firefighters performing CPR on the seriously hurt 89-year-old man outside the building – and appeal to members of the public not to further circulate video of the lifesaving efforts, out of respect for the deceased’s family.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation and anyone with relevant information is encouraged to call 247-1744 or 211 as soon as possible.
