One unlucky New York man was trapped in his car for 10-hours, with no heat, after a snow plow covered his car in snow.

New York just got blasted by a major winter storm and the 911 calls flooded in throughout the state. One of those calls was from 58-year-old Kevin Kresen of Candor, New York. He was trapped in his car.

A call came in saying a driver went off the road and was stranded.

Zone Sgt. Jason Cawley of Troop C patrolled around the roadway scanning for the person’s car but couldn’t find anything. Eventually, Cawley “saw what appeared to be a row of mailboxes and waded through the snow to check the addresses.”

“While digging, he hit the windshield of a car and inside was the subject who had been making 911 calls,” police said.

Kresen told the officer that he had been in his car for 10-hours, with no heat since the vehicle’s serpentine belt was broken. He claimed that he’d been “plowed in by a truck and his car covered with close to four feet of snow.”

Kresen was removed from the vehicle and he was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was treated after suffering hypothermia and frostbite.

“The actions of Sergeant Cawley no doubt saved the driver’s life. Job well done,” the department wrote on Facebook, sharing photos of Cawley posing with Kresen while wearing masks in his hospital room.
