The Ellwood City Volunteer Fire Department is holding a fundrasier for Capt. Frank Condell and family.
The benefit will take place from 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Wurtemburg-Perry Fire Department, 425 Portersville Road. The cost is $10 per person. Children under 5 eat free. The menu is pasta, meatballs, Italian bread, salad, dessert and refreshments.
In March, Condell suffered a significant brain injury. Fire Chief Rick Myers said, “the injury was a natural occurence and did not occur at the fire station.”
According to the department’s statement, Condell was flown by helicopter to a Pittsburgh hopsital, where he underwent surgery to remove a large blood clot.
Condell suffered serious bleeding in his brain. The surgery relieved the pressure and stopped the bleeding.
