NY governor helps rescue man after accident

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo jumped into action when he saw a man stranded inside an overturned vehicle after an accident on Monday.

Cuomo was returning from a speaking engagement at The Association for a Better New York, a non-profit organization focused on community and business development, when he and his team came across the crash.

The driver's van tipped to the side after crashing into the median, and he was unable to free himself, according to various media reports.

Cuomo is among several individuals - including a man with a badge and gun - seen assisting the man from the van, which almost overturned on the median.

Cuomo and his entourage stopped to offer assistance while state police cut the man out of his seatbelt.

In 2017, Cuomo was photographed helping tow a stranded driver's vehicle alongside the Sprain Brook Parkway, according to a Lohud report.

Footage from his staff shows the Democratic New York governor helping a man out of the driver's seat of a van turned on its side.
