Stamford honoring rescue workers from Mill River accident
More than a dozen Stamford police officers and an Air Force sergeant are being honored Monday for their heroic rescue after a car accident last November.
A SUV driven by 32-year-old Trache Gordon, of Bridgeport, hit another car and then plunged into the Mill River. Gordon was carrying seven disabled passengers from a local group home at the time. The sergeant witnessed the accident and sprung into action, jumping into the water. Moments later, police officers and firefighters arrived and pulled all eight passengers to safety.
Gordon, who was working for ARI of Connecticut, apparently suffered a medical episode at the wheel. He has been charged with reckless driving and driving with a suspended license.
