WEST MAYFIELD TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — Emergency responders called on a civilian to help rescue a teenager injured in an ATV accident in Beaver County this weekend.

The accident happened in West Mayfield Township Sunday afternoon.

Officials say Joe DeMuzio drove his own ATV into the woods to locate the victim and get paramedics to the scene as well.

“The conditions were extremely muddy, wet, rainy,” said DeMuzio. “He was lying on a hillside with some sort of injury, which we didn’t know what it was.”

DeMuzio owns the property where the crash happened.

There’s no word on the condition of the teen, but his injuries are not believed to be serious.
