Man rescued after trying to retrieve computer

Posted: Updated:
COLCHESTER, Vt. -

A Winooski man had to be rescued after he got into trouble trying to save his computer.

Colchester police say Randy Lamore, 42, was walking along the railroad tracks, near the power dam on Gorge Road, when he dropped his computer a hundred feet below. It landed on the bank of the Winooski River. Lamore tried to retrieve it, but got stuck on some rock ledges in thick underbrush. He called 911.

It took rescue crews half an hour to find him, and another hour to rescue him.

Police say Lamore had been drinking - but was not hurt.
