Man Trapped in Mulch Machine Greets Rescuers

MEDIA CONTACT: Mark E. Brady, Chief Spokesperson, 240-508-7930

He doesn't remember much from April 17th.  He recognized some of the faces of his rescuers from the pictures he has seen about the incident.  Larry Marshall Porter, 60 years of age, of Maysville, West Virginia, visited with the firefighter/medics and members of the Technical Rescue Team that rescued him after he became trapped within a mulch dye machine in Laurel.    He and his family came to the Laurel Fire/EMS Station #810 to meet personnel that were on the call.  Larry was very gracious and thanked the crews for everything they did for him that day.  He has survived the ordeal and continues to visit doctors in Baltimore for follow-up treatment for the injuries to his legs.

MEDIA NOTE:  Any member of the media that would like to interview Mr. Porter may call me for his contact information.
