Margaretville State Trooper Commended For Life Saving Actions

A New York State Trooper is being hailed as a hero for helping to save the life of a tree company worker whose leg was caught in a wood chipper. Trooper Mitchell Reed responded last Thursday to the area of Dry Brook Road when he heard a high priority call Thursday January 7th. Two of his co-workers freed the man from the chipper and Trooper Reed applied a tourniquet to try and stop the bleeding until paramedics arrived.
