City Councilor Kevin McCauley, a Bristol firefighter, apparently shattered his ankle on a fire call over the weekend, according to a couple of colleagues.
McCauley slipped on some black ice while responding to a Middle Street fire call, they said, and went down with all of his gear on.
Mayor Art Ward told the crowd at tonight's downtown hearing that McCauley was on a call and broke his ankle.
He's said to be in real pain and facing some pretty serious reconstruction surgery.
I'll try to talk to McCauley Tuesday to get the real story. Let's hope he's back on his feet soon.
