NY firefighte­r hailed for off-duty rescue in Connecticu­t


BROOKFIELD, Conn. – A suburban New York firefighte­r said that his training kicked in when he spotted a burning car on a Connecticu­t roadside over the weekend and went on to rescue the injured driver. Nicholas Perri Jr. was offduty, driving home from work, and didn’t have firefighti­ng gear when he saw the blazing vehicle on the side of Route 7 early Saturday morning. He said he broke the front passenger-side window and was able to pull the driver through it after struggling a bit to free one of her legs, which was mangled.
