NBC Miami reports that all six were taken to the hospital with numerous serious injuries that included a skull fracture, broken bones, and internal organ damage.

The Jacksonville Fire Department says Lane-Berry was a firefighter from Aug. 4, 2013 to July 18, 2016. JFRD says that he resigned.

This is the same former Jacksonville firefighter accused of having sex in South Florida with a 16-year-old girl he had met through Facebook.

He was cleared of charges, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

Lane-Berry was taken into custody April 27, 2016 on charges of sexual assault of someone 16 or 17 years old by a person older than 24 and traveling to meet a minor after use of a computer to lure her, according to the Broward County jail. 

The teen told the Davie Police Department on March 18 that she had sexual intercourse with a man without her consent, according to the arrest report. She said she met him through Facebook about a year before when she was 16 years old.
