A Theills volunteer firefighter is recovering after being injured during Wednesday's nor'easter.

Kenny Connolly was responded to a call with two Haverstraw police officers when a tree came crashing down on him and shattered his leg.

Officers rushed the NYPD officer to Nyack Hospital where he underwent a two hour surgery.

Connolly says he is grateful for the two men who helped him.

He is now at home resting. Doctors say he has about eight weeks of recovery.
