CINCINNATI (AP) — The U.S Air Force has awarded an Ohio school more than $1 million to study how air medical evacuation affects patients, medical professionals and medical equipment.

The University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center says the new funding supports research projects led by members of UC's Institute for Military Medicine.

The institute is a collaboration of basic science and clinical researchers, trauma surgeons and Air Force members based at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. It focuses on studying the complex traumatic injuries of warfare.

The Air Force approved a $24 million cooperative agreement in 2010 to fund UC research on the unique environment of air medical evacuation. The new funding will allow researchers to continue ongoing work and launch new projects.

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Two firefighters battling a blaze at an apartment complex near downtown Toledo were killed on Sunday, city officials said.

Firefighters Stephen Machcinski, 42, and James Dickman, 31, were killed while fighting the fire in the six-unit building, Toledo Fire Department Chief Luis Santiago said at a news conference Sunday night.

He said that Machcinski was a 16-year veteran, while Dickman had been on the job for only six months. Both worked together at the same firehouse in the city.

Santiago said that the fire department will fully investigate the blaze, which was reported around 3:30 p.m.

LIMA, Ohio (AP) — A 34-year-old man has been found dead in a western Ohio lake after authorities say he crashed his snowmobile near the shore.

Montezuma fire officials tell The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1dEyJpY) that Dale Bruns of St. Henry went missing after he left a bar around midnight Saturday.

An extensive search involving nearly 90 personnel from seven agencies ensued.

At about 10 a.m. Saturday, a team with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources spotted Bruns' snowmobile helmet floating in the open waters of Grand Lake St. Marys, about 30 miles southwest of Lima.

His body was found soon after.

Last month, a 44-year-old Gary Jenkins of Norwalk in northern Ohio was killed when the snowmobile he was riding south of Sandusky hit a culvert and threw him.

Family alleges Ohio execution unconstitutional

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The prolonged execution of an inmate during which he repeatedly gasped and snorted amounted to cruel and unusual punishment which should not be allowed to happen again, the inmate's family said in a federal lawsuit.

The lawsuit, filed late Friday, also alleges the drug maker that produced the medications illegally allowed them to be used for an execution and should be prohibited from making them available for capital punishment.

Dennis McGuire "repeated cycles of snorting, gurgling and arching his back, appearing to writhe in pain," the lawsuit said. "It looked and sounded as though he was suffocating."

McGuire's execution Jan. 16 lasted 26 minutes, the longest since the state resumed putting inmates to death in 1999, according to an Associated Press analysis of all 53 execution logs maintained by the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.

It remains unclear what McGuire experienced. The AP observed him appearing to fall unconscious and remaining so while he snorted, gasped and opened and shut his mouth repeatedly.

An official at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton said sub-zero temperatures two weeks ago caused the pipes to burst.
