Chicopee firefighters rescue workers stranded on river

Hampden County

Firefighters helped three workers who were stranded on the Chicopee River Thursday.

The contractors set up on a concrete platform on the river near the deadly bridge.

Surging water rushed over their pathway back to shore, stranding them on the platform.

Chicopee firefighters were called in and extended a platform to bring the three men safely to shore.
