Bridgeport man dies in freak accident while shoveling snow
A Bridgeport man died in a freak accident while shoveling snow in Manhattan Thursday morning.
Police say Miguel Gonzalez, a New York City doorman, died after falling while shoveling snow and cutting his neck on a glass pane.
They say he was taken to the hospital, where he later died of his injuries.
Gonzalez was a husband, father and a church leader. His home on Wood Avenue was packed with mourners Thursday night, including the city's mayor.
"I don't have words to describe how wonderful he was," says his wife Elena.
Friends say Gonzalez hoped to retire soon and dreamed of moving with his wife to Puerto Rico.
News 12 is told Gonzalez was known for taking in people who needed help and giving them a second chance.
