    FF arrested for stealing foot

    Former Firefighter Arrested In Stolen Foot Case

    Woman Trains Cadaver Dogs


    POSTED: Monday, January 26, 2009
    UPDATED: 4:03 pm EST January 26, 2009

    MELBOURNE, Fla. -- A former St. Lucie County firefighter has been arrested on charges that she took home a Melbourne man's amputated foot following a September car crash.

    An arrest warrant was issued late Friday for Cindy Economou, who was picked up Monday afternoon, said Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Tim Frith.

    Economou was charged with petit theft, a second-degree misdemeanor, Frith told Local 6 News partner Florida Today.

    The crash occurred Sept. 19 when Lambert was traveling south on Interstate 95 in Port St. Lucie. His Chevrolet pickup collided with another vehicle, and the pickup flipped, striking a pine tree.

    A rescue crew was forced to amputate Lambert's foot in order to extricate him from the truck.

    Economou is accused of retrieving the foot from the scene, taking it home and putting it in her freezer, presumably to use in cadaver-dog training that she did outside of her role with the fire department.

    I worked extrication for twenty years, and in alll that time, I NEVER had to amputate anyone's body parts to extricate them from a crash.

    Got to admit that some calls I've been on, it would probably have been easier to do it that way, but - - no!

    We would always "remove the vehicle from the person, rather than the person from the vehicle".

    With all the technology and tools available (Jaws of life, air bags, etc.) there should never be any reason to have to do that.

    Not saying that this was never done anywhere, but I never heard of it.

    Can you say, "MAJOR law suit"?

    +1 in my hosedragger experience we always heard the silly rumors in the community, but nowhere,at no time was amputation ever an option. Even with the most basic of extrication tools it wasn't even considered.

    I won't even dignify this thread with a footnote.

    Tell me not, Sweet, I am unkind,

    Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
    To war and arms I fly.

    The opinions expressed by this poster are wholly his own, and should never be construed to even remotely be in representation of his employer, its agencies or assigns. In fact, they probably fail to be in alignment with the opinions of any rational human being.
