When crews arrived, the Bobcat Tractor was laying at a 90-degree angle, with the bucket over the side of a parking deck. Initial reports indicated the male was removing snow from the parking deck. The male was trapped inside due to the door to the machine being in the front. According to Rockaway Township Police Lieutenant Peter Riley, “the male was removed with minor injuries,” and the incident was cleared at 4:45. Additional information may be released once the police report is complete.

Assisting at the scene was Picatinny Arsenal Fire & Emergency services, Rockaway Borough Fire Department, Wharton Fire Department, Saint Claires BLS, and Rockaway Township PD.
