SCHROEPPEL, N.Y. (AP) - Three men working at a central New York car dealership teamed up to save a man who had become trapped under his Hummer after backing the vehicle into a river.

Kip Northrup tells The Post-Standard of Syracuse (https://bit.ly/2uyMLJZ ) that he was working at a car dealership in Schroeppel (SCROO’-puhl) Friday night when he heard someone yelling for help.

He followed the sound to a neighboring property, where he found a man whose legs were trapped under a back tire of a Hummer that was partially in the Oswego River.

The man told Northrup he had backed into the river and got trapped under the back end when he checked it out.

Northrup called 911, then ran back to the dealership. He and two employees freed the man, who was treated at a hospital and released.
