The Daily Voice also reported on a construction accident in New City, a hamlet in the town of Clarkstown north of New York City. The construction worker was working on the building of the NewCity Volunteer Ambulance Corps last Friday when he got his hand caught between the wall he was working on and a piece of construction equipment. Fortunately, New City Ambulance was on hand, as were Rockland Medics, the New City Fire Department, and the Clarkstown Fire and Building Inspectors. The injured worker was thus able to get timely medical attention and was then taken to Westchester Medical Center for treatment.
