Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Kentucky firefighter who died after an accident at Campbellsville University will be honored this month.

Tony Grider was shocked last August during an ice bucket challenge at the school.

He and another firefighter were hurt when the bucket truck they were in made contact with a power line.

Grider died about one month later.
 
On Sept. 11, his name will be added to the Johnny Edrington Memorial in Campbellsville, Kentucky. The memorial honors emergency service personnel and those killed in the line of duty.
