Family plans to sue FDNY for refusing to acknowledge 1935 death as line of duty 
Eight decades after a New York City firefighter's death, his family says the Fire Department needs to finally acknowledge his sacrifice — and they're ready to take their case to court. Firefighter Thomas O'Brien responded to a two-alarm blaze on W. 26th St. in October 1935. He returned to Engine Company 3, and was found dead in his bed at the W. 17th St. firehouse hours later. He was 48.
