Father of 3 dies after trying to break up Dorchester fight

Police are investigating the death of a Quincy father who was injured trying to break up a Dorchester fight and later died, according to The Boston Globe.

The altercation broke out just before 1:20 a.m. Sunday on Adams Street. The man was pushed while trying to break up the fight and hit his head, according to the Globe. He was transported to Boston Medical Center and later pronounced dead.

The victim’s family and friends identified him as Brian Hingston, a married father of three.

“His loss is unimaginable to all that knew and loved him. He was a gentleman who loved his family, loved to laugh, enjoyed traveling and music,” Hingston’s family said in a statement to the Globe. ““Brian died a true hero as his organs were donated to save six lives. He had also previously run the Boston Marathon as part of the Boston Fire Department team and raised money for the Kenny Quinn Ford Brain Tumor Research Foundation.”
