25 Year-old Chris Moles died along with an inmate when they fell down an elevator shaft during a fight at the Luzerne County Jail in Wilkes-Barre.

Moles' college baseball coach Chris Penzack says he always knew the star athlete would choose a career in public service.  Moles led his college baseball team, Lackawanna College to the Junior College World Series.  

The freak fall that took his life on Monday happened on his very first day on the job as a corrections officer at the Luzerne County Jail.
