Volunteer Fire Fighter Kevin O'Toole and Ethan Sorrell Update

Kevin O'Toole
One week after 22-year-old Bladensburg Volunteer Fire Fighter Kevin O'Toole sustained burns over 50% of his body he remains in "Critical but stable" condition in the Burn Unit at Medstar at the Washington Hospital Center.

He had a couple of skin graphs procedures during the week and on Friday he went through a "scrubbing" of his burn injuries.  Kevin also had a physical therapy session and was able to raise his hands over his head.  He is taking strolls around the Burn Unit with his nurse and physical therapy staff and is said to be doing quite well.

Friends, family, co-workers and the DC Firefighters Burn Foundation continue to keep Kevin and his parents company as they progress through the recovery process.

Ethan Sorrell is spending some time in North Carolina with his family after being released on Tuesday evening.  He is expected to return to Prince George's County later this week for scheduled medical appointments at the Burn Center.  Ethan will also be spending considerable time with his firefighting partner Kevin.
