A fundraising campaign is underway for an East Butler volunteer firefighter who was seriously injured this week in a swimming pool accident. Zac Hack was hurt early Sunday, according to East Butler Volunteer Fire Department Chief Derek Thompson. Details surrounding the accident are unclear but Hack suffered a neck injury and was taken to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh where he remains. “He’s going to be there for a little while,” Thompson said Friday. “He has a long recovery ahead.” An online GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help with medical expenses. By Friday morning, over $7,000 had already been raised. Thompson said his department got the call early Sunday to assist with this accident, and they quickly realized it was surrounding one of their own.
