Sgt. Brian Mohl, a 26-year veteran of the department, was working the overnight shift during Storm Ida when he called for help around 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 2, saying his vehicle had become trapped in rising flood waters near the Pomperaug River in Woodbury, Connecticut.

Dive teams found his empty vehicle in the river just after daybreak. Sgt. Mohl, who was 50, was found an hour later further down the river.
