New York Governor Helps Motorist Stranded in Massive Snowstorm
Gov. Andrew Cuomo reverted to his old job during New York's brutal snowstorm Thursday.
Once a tow truck operator, always a tow truck operator.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo reverted to his former occupation Thursday when he helped a stranded motorist along the Sprain Brook Parkway in Westchester County.
Cuomo was photographed by his chief of staff helping to attach a tow line to a vehicle stuck in icy snow. The Democratic governor got down on his knees to affix the cable to the car's undercarriage as winter storm Niko blew through the state and into New England.
"NY'ers help each other in times of need. Look out for each other day," wrote one of Cuomo's top aides, Melissa DeRosa, on her Twitter page.

Thursday's massive snow storm dumped up to a foot of snow in New York City areas, snarling traffic, trains and causing at least one death when a doorman shoveling snow fell through a window.
Cuomo, a Queens native, worked as a tow truck driver in his younger days.
And Thursday wasn't the first time he helped out during a winter storm. Last year, he helped tow a car trying to enter a highway near the Throgs Neck Bridge in New York City.
