Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: IL   USA   Mon. Apr. 15, 1935
Summary: Patrolman Peppard was killed after falling from an apartment building that was on fire. He and his partner had just delivered a suicidal patient to a nearby hospital when they observed the flames. The two officers immediately responded to the scene and rescued 15 families from the building.

As Patrolman Peppard continued to search for more people in the building he became entrapped on the top floor, surrounded by flames. In an effort to escape the flames he hung from a window ledge with one hand, while attempting to signal other officers with a flashlight in his other hand. The flames burned his hand, causing him to lose his grip and fall to the pavement below. He was transported to the hospital where he succumbed to his injuries a short time later.

Patrolman Peppard had served with the agency for 6 years. He was survived by his wife and son.
