Fursuiter Lemonade Coyote dies in crash while on EMT duty
While not on duty, Lemonade enjoyed fursuiting. His suit's bright and vibrant pink and yellow was true to the name. He was passionate for sticking up for what was right; once saying his dream job was to be a homicide detective.
According to his Facebook profile, Tim attended Regis High School and St. Lawrence University in New York, then switched to Indiana University, joining the Indianapolis EMS in June 2010. He graduated last fall with a major in Political Science, after four semesters on the Dean's List.
In a quote on the organization's website, Indianapolis EMS chief Dr. Charles Miramonti said:
The entire Indianapolis EMS family is deeply saddened by the news of our fallen brother. Tim was a heroic provider, but he was also a wonderful colleague and friend to us all.
Update: Cody Medley, the other EMT who was in the ambulance with Tim and was critically injured in the crash, has also died from his injuries.
Update 2 (1 March): No criminal charges will be laid; the driver ran a red light but was not legally impaired, and both vehicles were speeding.
