Man injured after being trapped in machinery in Wingdale mine

Sherman volunteer firefighters have provide mutual aid in Wingedale, New York as firefighters there helped rescue a 40 year old male trapped in machinery underground in a mine.  The Dover Plains-based J. H. Ketcham Hose Company responded to help with the technical rescue operation Tuesday afternoon at Wingdale Materials. 

Rescuers went 2500 feet into the mine and made contact with the man, who was conscious and alert.  He was trapped inside the cab of his excavator by a large boulder that had dislodged form the mine's wall, landing on the machinery.  The 40 to 50 pound boulder was stabilized and the worker extricated after about about an hour.
