Glenbard South grad killed in FBI training accident
GLEN ELLYN – A Glenbard South High School graduate working as an FBI special agent was killed in a training accident Friday, according to information on the FBI's website.
Christopher Lorek, 41, suffered fatal injuries when he fell a significant distance during a maritime counterterrorism exercise off the coast of Virginia Beach, according to FBI officials. Lorek, along with Special Agent Stephen Shaw, 40, were fast-roping from a helicopter onto a ship when the helicopter encountered difficulties.
Lorek graduated from Glenbard South in 1989, according to reports from the Chicago Tribune. He joined the FBI in 1996 in a professional support role and became an agent two years later, according to FBI officials. Lorek most recently served on the team that rescued a 5-year-old boy taken hostage in Alabama.
