Holding a Vigil for Dallas Firefighter Battling COVID-19 – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

There was a huge show of support Wednesday night for a Dallas firefighter battling COVID-19 at Parkland Hospital.

David Leos has been with Dallas Fire-Rescue for over 40 years.

He is currently in the intensive care unit fighting for his life.

His fellow firefighters organized the vigil for him.

“I would say that compassion and strength are two defining qualities of this guy. He’s a firefighter. He’s rough and tumble, but when you meet Dave, and you look him in the eye, you can just tell he’s a compassionate human being,” said Christian Hinojosa, board member of the Firefighters Association of Hispanic origin.

Fellow firefighters also describe Leos as a fighter, who fought and overcame leukemia.
