ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A DePaula Chevrolet employee was honored after saving a disabled man who was left alone in a van for hours.
The disabled man was completely non-verbal. The four state employees are now facing charges.
Landy was given the sheriff’s Civilian Commendation Award.
The award is given to people who promote public safety and help to build a strong community. Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple said Landy could have saved the man’s life.
In addition to his commendation, Landy was treated to lunch – a 6 ft. sub sandwich.
