Is "injury" just a generic term they use or was he actually injured during an evolution instead of suffering a heart attack or something along that line?

Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta announced that Probationary Firefighter Jamel M. Sears died at Mt. Sinai Medical Center today, where he was taken yesterday after falling unconscious following completion of a training exercise at the Departmentís training academy on Randallís Island.

Probationary Firefighter Sears, 33, was appointed to the FDNY on July 1, 2008, and was enrolled in the 23-week Probationary Firefighters Training Program. He fell unconscious at about 11:30 a.m. after successfully completing an 18-minute training exercise where he donned full firefighting gear and performed a series of tasks and functional skills. Firefighters on scene tried to revive him but he never regained consciousness.

Probationary Firefighter Sears, a lifelong Bronx resident, was a four-year U.S. Navy veteran (1995-1999) and served aboard the USS Alaska. He also worked at TD Waterhouse as a customer rep and at Keyspan Energy as an operating mechanic prior to joining the FDNY. He graduated from All Hallows High School and attended Bronx Community College before enlisting in the Navy.

He is survived by his wife, Sherita, a New York City Police Officer assigned to the 41st Precinct in the Bronx, and their two children, son Mahlek, 12, and daughter Jya, 8.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

 That format from YFDFireBuff's posting  is a department standard message announcing LODD's

What I don't understand is why they put it as operating at a specific Box. I remember a few years back, a fella died while working out on the treadmill in the firehouse. It was listed on the 5-5-5-5 as died as a result of injuries sustained in the performance of duty. 8336 is the Box number for the Academy, as it was the one used for the CFR run. I would have thought the same circumstances apply.

Obviously my heart goes out to this guy's family, as it does to the Drill instructors at the Rock and the members of the Health and Fitness Unit.
Step up or Shut up!!!
