FDNY brawl ‘one of the most severe beatings seen on tape’: insider


I won't even try to speculate what led to this brawl.
  FDNY firefighters put their lives on the line everyday and do amazing things that hardly ever make the newspapers.  There's no place for this kind of stuff.  These men are better than that! 
NY Post reports a savage brawl between two warring groups of FDNY firefighters at a Bronx firehouse has sparked multiple investigations and shocked even hardened department brass, The Post has learned.

More than a dozen members pummeled three rivals with punches and kicks to the head during the melee, sources said.

“It was one of the most severe beatings they’ve seen on tape,” an FDNY insider said, recalling the reaction by brass who viewed video of the bloody fisticuffs.

“They can’t believe one of the guys wasn’t killed.”

“Someone grabbed his head and started pounding it into the pavement,” one said.
