Local paramedics are now in Buffalo helping handle a backlog of 911 calls because of the massive snowstorm.
Caitlyn Kockler and Kyle Shryock, of the Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps, have been in western New York since Tuesday.
They've been pulling 12-hour shifts, responding to about one call per hour - most of them being from earlier this week. "People are waiting in their homes for hours or days, with a deceased loved one in the residence, because it was so dangerous for people to get out there. Cars would get stuck. Even big fire engines were getting stuck," says Shyrock.
Kockler and Shryock come back from Buffalo this weekend.
