Excerpts from dnainfo.com:

The name of late firefighter Daniel Capuano has been added to the Chicago Firefighters Monument near Halsted and Exchange streets.

Capuano’s name, etched into the black granite memorial to 578 fallen Chicago firefighters, was revealed during a Saturday ceremony as an American flag flew overhead and a light rain fell.

Capuano, 42, of Mount Greenwood, a 15-year veteran of the fire department was searching a South Chicago building on Dec. 14 when he plunged two stories down an empty elevator shaft.
