Firefighters visit fallen brother at Mass. General Hospital

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) -

After Michael Kennedy was removed from the basement of 298 Beacon Street he was taken to Mass. General Hospital where many emergency responders stopped by to pay their respects.

Some firefighters walked several blocks, others went in their fire trucks, an MBTA bus even shuttled more than a dozen firefighters to the hospital.

They went to Mass General Hospital to pay their respects to the fallen firefighter.

As the fire on Beacon Street raged officials from the Boston Fire and Police Departments rushed to MGH.

Members of the union and a fire department Chaplin all passed somberly into the MGH emergency room entrance.

A short time later a small procession rolled slowly away from the hospital carrying firefighters tired from the job done and weary about what lies ahead.

Blocks away, fellow firefighters brought Lt. Ed Walsh out on the back of a stretcher, his body, covered in an American flag.

The husband and father of three was honored with a solemn ceremony. Firefighters, along with Boston Police and State Police presented arms, a sign of respect, and then he was taken down Storrow Drive one last time.
