NEW MILFORD, N.J. -- An elderly New Milford couple were found injured but alive Sunday -- a day after she fell down the basement steps and he crawled from his wheelchair to try and help, authorities said.
The River Road couple was rushed to Hackensack University Medical Center after their son found both unconscious, Sgt. Kevin Van Saders told Daily Voice.
The 83-year-old husband was unable to move after crawling from his wheelchair to try and get to his 78-year-old wife, who'd fallen down the basement steps sometime on Saturday, he said.
Ambulances from Holy Name Medical Center and HUMC transported them.
Their conditions couldn't immediately be determined Sunday afternoon.
