State police sergeant dies after being washed away in Ida's floodwaters in Woodbury

A Connecticut State Police sergeant has died after he was swept away by Ida's floodwaters in Woodbury, officials say.
State Police Troop L says that Sgt. Brian Mohl, who served on the force for 26 years, was supervising the midnight shift near Jack's Bridge when he made a distressing emergency call that he was in swift water around 3:30 a.m.
When the water started to recede at daybreak, emergency crews were able to locate the police cruiser and the sergeant one hour later.
He was airlifted to Yale New Haven Hospital, where he died en route.
"As a trooper, you go out to try to rescue others; take care of them; and that's what troopers do - they take care of us every day," Gov. Ned Lamont says.
