Water Rescue in Blooming Grove NY
Cronomer Valley Dive Team was called to assist Washingtonville FD along with several other Orange County Agencies for a car that had veered off Tuthill Road and landed in a nearby stream. The car took on water very quickly and the occupant was able to climb up on the roof awaiting rescuers. The occupant was removed by water rescuers on scene utilizing an aerial ladder from Washingtonville FD and forming a human chain of rescuers as a backup in case the attempt failed. The occupant was rescued successfully uninjured and refused medical attention. For video of scene visit Spectrum News.
