Mahoning supervisors honor plow drivers

The Mahoning Township Supervisors presented certificates to Ronald Wenrich and Christopher Moses, the two plow drivers who discovered the snow-covered body of Mahoning Township resident Paul Fichter while clearing snow along Breezewood Drive on Dec. 16, 2020.

The incident occurred during Winter Storm Orlena, which dumped nearly 2 feet of snow in the area. Fichter’s car had become stuck, and, in an attempt to walk along the road to his home, he lost direction and fell into a nearby pond. He pulled himself out but lost consciousness after falling down an embankment.

Wenrich and Moses found Fichter buried under snow and called for emergency services. Wenrich and Moses’ quick response saved his life.
