ATV Rider Rescued

(Grand Island WBEN)  An ATV rider was rescued Saturday afternoon after he flipped his vehicle in a wooded area of Whitehaven Road on Grand Island. 19-year old Greg Van Norman had crossed a creek bed when he lost control and the ATV fell on him. Van Norman was able to use his cellphone to call Buffalo 911 operators who assisted the Grand Island Fire Department in finding the young man.

Assistant Fire Chief Chris Soluri was able to find Van Norman after a 10 minute search. He was rushed to ECMC for medical treatment. Officials say if Van Norman hadn't been able to use his phone he probably would not have survived the harsh weather conditions at the time
