CTG and Blackstone-NEY Congratulate Heroic Employees

JAMESTOWN, NY – The CTG family of companies is proud to recognize three Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics employees who stepped into a perilous situation to help save a life.

Merle Delcamp, Dean Bennett, and Patti Carlson, employees of Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics, each played an important role in the rescue of a local man who was in extreme danger.

When Merle Delcamp and Dean Bennett arrived for work at 6:30 am on Monday, July 19th, they noticed area resident, Mike Campbell, attempting to rescue a man in distress. The victim was an older man who appeared to have fallen into the Chadakoin River and was clinging to a tree.

The river’s rushing current was making the situation especially dangerous, as the three men worked to save the weakened man from the water. A steep cement bank was also impeding the progress of the rescue, making it too difficult for the men to pull the victim to safety.

Meanwhile, Patti Carlson, placed a 9-1-1 call for assistance. The Jamestown Police Department arrived in time to complete the rescue.The man was safely transported to a local medical facility to receive care.

CTG and Blackstone-NEY are extremely proud to have such fine people on our team. We congratulate their quick-thinking and bravery in this dire situation.
