FOX NEWS - Vietnam War veteran dies days after son perishes in blaze, Sept 24, 2013

"A Vietnam War veteran died just four days after the son he tried to rescue died in a fire at the family’s home in upstate New York. When John Hover’s home caught fire last week, the former Marine and Vietnam War veteran sprang into action. According to The Albany Times Union, Hover, 64, ran in to save his wife, Georgia Skarzynski Hover, who uses a wheelchair, from the family’s burning upstate Poestenskill, N.Y., home. But Hover was driven from the wood-frame home by smoke before he could reach his son Devin, 29, who later died. Days after Devin’s death, John Hover, who worked as a foreman at Collins Lumber in Troy, was killed after his truck hit another vehicle head-on as he returned from surveying his charred home, the paper reported."
