(AP) MAHOPAC FALLS, N.Y. - A volunteer New York firefighter has died, months after he was injured during a safety demonstration.

Robert Johnson struck his head when he fell off a fire truck in October at a nursery school. He had served for 17 years in the Mahopac (MAY'-oh-pak) Falls Volunteer Fire Department in Putnam County.

Fire Chief Ann Link says Johnson died late Sunday from complications due to his injuries.

The former Marine was 75.
