200th firefighter dies from Ground Zero illnessThe 200th New York City firefighter has died from ailments stemming from working at the toxic World Trade Center site in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, according to city officials.

Richard Driscoll, 73, died one day after the death of fellow firefighter Kevin Nolan.

Driscoll, who was cited for bravery five times during his firefighting career, rushed to Ground Zero and “worked tirelessly in the rescue and recovery efforts that followed,” the Fire Department of New York said.

"Rest in peace," New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio tweeted Thursday, referring to both men.

"They didn’t hesitate to run into danger," he wrote. "They stayed until the work was done."
