Description of Incident:

On March 25, 2016 the Beaver Dams Fire Dept. was called out to a one vehicle roll over with 3 people entrapped. Arriving on scene the vehicle was on its side with one person trapped in the front seat and two individuals trapped in the back seat. We stabilized the car and proceeded to remove a portion of the roof to get the front occupant out. At that point we needed to cut a tree out of the way so we could finish the extrication. We then proceeded to remove the rest of the roof to extricate the other two individuals. All three people were air lifted to the nearest trauma center and we have received word from the hospital that they all will be released soon and are doing great. With the delicate task that we had we were very proud to have the AMKUS tools in our hands. We received mutual aid for assistance from the Montour Falls Fire Dept. and Landing Zone was established by Watkins Glen Fire Dept.
