Stony Brook, NY - May 2, 2018 - Two Suffolk County Police Canine Section officers rescued a man who attempted to commit suicide in Stony Brook on Monday, April 30.
Sixth Precinct officers responded to a call on April 30 at approximately 10:15 p.m. from a man who was concerned that his friend intended to commit suicide in a wooded area near Seabrook Court. Officers were unable to immediately locate the subject and requested assistance from Canine Section Officers Christopher Fezza and Michael Cassidy.
Officer Cassidy and his partner Thor located the man in a tree with a noose around his neck. Officer Fezza climbed victim’s ladder, which was next to the tree, and when the man started to hang himself, Officer Fezza pressed him against the ladder. Officer Cassidy gave a knife to Officer Fezza who cut the rope and lowered the man to the ground as Sixth Precinct officers assisted.
