It was one of the most severe beatings theyve seen on tape, an FDNY insider said, recalling the reaction by brass who viewed video of the bloody fisticuffs.
They cant believe one of the guys wasnt killed.
The tape shows Adam Soler, 35, of Engine 68, being held down by two firefighters from Rescue Co. 3 and repeatedly kicked by a third, said sources who were told about the video.
Someone grabbed his head and started pounding it into the pavement, one said.
Yet two months after the June 6 melee, no one has been arrested or fired.

“It was a ‘private personal” affair”, so needed to be buried for as long as possible.
That wasn't considered a risk to life when Trayvon Martin did it to George Zimmerman.
IOW, the attackers were mad that their victim supported President Trump -- IOW, it's Trump's fault for winning the presidency. /s Thanks DUMBGRUNT.
All seems to depend on the ox being gored.
Do oxen come in different colors? (Other than the one-off, Blue)
——That wasn’t considered a risk to life when Trayvon Martin did it to George Zimmerman.——
My liberal brother thinks Zimmerman pounded his own head into the ground so he could get away with murder....I kid you not...
Boys will be boys.
Reminds me of one situation a few years ago in a NYC firehouse, one guy kept bullying another fire fighter until the other guy had enough and picked up a chair and bashed the guys skull into mush, I think they were drinking too.
The 35 y/o who was targeted should sue the others, and the department (for not firing them) like there’s no tomorrow.
You have my sympathies!
I don’t even know what else to say to that.
I think oxen do come in different colors. Including two-tone paint jobs. :)
Well they are union so I would imagine its being taken care of through their steward
“Yet two months after the June 6 melee, no one has been arrested or fired.”
If it was me, and I didn’t think I’d done something to deserve it, two months later there wouldn’t be any need to arrest or fire anyone.
Firehouses are territorial in NYC to the point they nearly kill each other over comments? Just another problem in a city made of problems. And why aren’t those thugs in jail that carried out the beating?
I guess that’s why (besides the increase in pay) that the firemen must be trained as paramedics.... they can take care of their own!!!!
firemen are wild
Weve been repeatedly told that they are heroes.
