A New York State Police sergeant rescued a man stranded for hours in a car covered by nearly 4 feet of snow thrown by a plow during last week’s storm, authorities said.
The 58-year-old Candor man drove off the road and got plowed in by a truck, authorities said.
He made several 911 calls and was stranded more than 10 hours without heat.
Sgt. Jason Cawley dug through the snow on Thursday and found the vehicle in the town of Owego, outside Binghamton.
The man had hypothermia and frostbite when he was removed from the car. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.
