NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- There was a solemn tribute Saturday for the probationary firefighter who died this week.
The 31-year-old suffered a medical episode and collapsed during training Thursday. He died the next day.
Malveaux's FDNY partner fought back tears while remembering him as someone who devoted his life to helping people and loved to make people laugh.
"He was heroic with every job, every patient that he had," FDNY paramedic Christian Marte said. "Just the thought of Vincent not being here, it tears me apart."
The medical examiner is working to determine the exact cause of death.
