A Hawleyville Volunteer firefighter came upon a serious accident outside Danbury Mall over the weekend. A car struck a cement pole stanchion at the entrance. Firefighter Reese Moffett donned his turnouts and personal protective equipment and approached the car. He found an unconscious elderly man, and broke a window to gain access to the patient, who was unconscious, and having respiratory difficulty. Moffett updated police when they arrived. He and another were able to gain access to the backseat, and hold the patient's airway open until Danbury Fire Department Engine 26 and EMS arrived.
