Three three contractors are safely back ashore, thanks to help from Chicopee Fire.
Fire officials told Western Mass News that on Thursday, the contractors were working from a concrete platform in the Chicopee River near Deady Bridge.
Their return pathway was overcome with water, so two fire engines and a tower from the fire department were called in and brought them all to safety.
Members of the Chicopee Electric Light were also on-scene to assist.
