Firefighters on the scene rescued LeTourneau and took him to the hospital, where he died from his injuries, .

The Philadelphia Fire Department announced it will posthumously promote LeTourneau to captain.

Philadelphia Fire Department Commissioner Adam Thiel also spoke, describing LeTourneau as a firefighter's firefighter, saying he breathed and slept his job, and was entirely committed to the city.

Lt. Matt LeTourneau, 42, was pinned under debris when the home collapsed around 10 a.m., the fire department said in a statement. Lt. LeTourneau sacrificed his life trying to save others.

A resident of Springfield in Delco and 11-year veteran of the fire department, LeTourneau graduatedCardinal O'Hara High School in 1993 and got an associate's degree in fire science at Delaware County Community College. "He received a unit citation in 2010 and a letter of commendation for his service during the World Meeting of Families in 2015". Philadelphia Police and Fire pipes and drums played "Danny Boy" as fellow firefighters carried LeTourneau's casket inside the basilica for his final viewing and funeral.

Starting sometime between 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., a funeral procession will head from the cathedral to Saints Peter and Paul Cemetery, 1600 S. Sproul Rd., Springfield.
