His father, Ed Genthert, fire chief of the Old Fort Fire Department, left out some of the details, though.
Since becoming a firefighter himself, Genthert has learned that they must detach themselves from the situation: be someone's shoulder to cry on and hold it together at the same time.
"I always admired him," Genthert said of his father."I have a deeper respect for the fire service now that I am a firefighter."
The Timberland High School graduate became a Mount Pleasant firefighter three years ago.Genthert, 25, started out studying sports medicine at Coastal Carolina University before switching to the fire service.His medical training has come in handy.
Genthert said he went to the scene thinking he would drop his medical bag next to the man and see some sign of life.
"The injuries were incompatible with life altogether," he said.
Most calls that come to the station on Six Mile Road during 24-hour shifts are less traumatic.
"If you can dream it up, people call about it," he said.

Those claws can also pose a threat to would-be rescuers, said Edward Genthert, Old Fort Fire Chief.
"We have had guys going up trees, where cats have latched onto our guys," he said. "It can be really hard to get them off of you."
"It can be really dangerous," Genthert continued, describing one incident where a firefighter in full gear - heavy bunker pants, helmet, face shield - was 40 feet up a pine tree with a cat "clawing the heck out of his neck" and trying to get at his face.
Still, the Old Fort department will rescue animals, on a case-by-case basis, he said.
"We've gone in drainage ditches pulling puppies out, and all sorts of stuff," Genthert said.
