Chief responds to video of firefighter snow stunt

A video captured volunteer firefighters being pulled behind a car on snow-covered roads

CBS 6 Albany

HUDSON, N.Y. — We haven't had too much snow this winter, so when we got some Friday, people were out having fun. But when does fun turn dangerous?

Friday night, during a CBS6 live shot, a group of volunteer firefighters were being dragged through the city streets - holding a rope being towed by an SUV. The group of volunteer firefighters made several trips past our cameras during the course of the evening.

Illegal? Yes. Dangerous? Yes. But should they really get in trouble for it? CBS6 received viewer e-mails and phone calls after Friday nights live shot. People were concerned about what they saw. On Monday morning, CBS6 sent a link of the video to the Mayor of Hudson. He didn't offer a comment, but the Fire Chief did release a statement. He told CBS 6: that's a sight that will never be seen again on warren street and that they are dealing with it internally.
