An unfortunate accident in Floral Park fatally electrocuted two contractors when scaffolding hit a power line April 7. The Floral Park Rescue Team revived both men; however, their injuries were so severe due to the electrocution they could not sustain life. A third man, a neighbor, received a shock while trying to rescue the men, according to reports. Medics checked him out at the scene; he refused hospital attention.
New York State Supreme Court Justice J. Edward McCarty, a retired US Army reserve colonel, will present "The War Against Terrorism: Are We Winning?" at the Floral Park American Legion Post on Elizabeth Street Friday, April 29, at 8:30 p.m. According to Commander Ned Johnson, the public is invited and refreshments will be served.
