Albany, NY - Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins, the Senate Democratic Leader,  recognized Irvington Fire Chief Chris DePaoli today in the State Senate with a Resolution, for his role in saving a woman’s life during a violent attack. On April 8, 2015, the Chief was driving with his two daughters, on their way to a softball game, when they passed the Irvington Train Station. At the stop sign, he spotted a man and a woman arguing, and saw the man was holding a knife. Without concern for his own safety, he jumped out of his truck and grabbed a baseball bat, running toward the couple. He was able to separate the two before police arrived to subdue the man and provide emergency assistance. The female victim had been stabbed in the chest and neck including the jugular vein.
