Patrolman George Yeager was killed when he fell through a building skylight while searching a building.

Patrolman Yeager was on foot patrol in Manhattan when the watchman from the Hills Brothers company alerted him that there was a fire in a building on Washington Street. Patrolman Yeager and the watchman entered the building and began to search for anyone who might be trapped. A cloud of smoke drove them back and they smashed out a window and climbed out onto the awning for the building. While on the wooden awning, Patrolman Yeager stepped on a skylight, fell to the sidewalk, and fractured his skull.

Patrolman Yeager was taken to the Hudson Street Hospital where he died 10 days later from his injuries.

Patrolman Yeager was assigned to the 8th Precinct (Leonard Street Station), which no longer exists today.
