Yesterday evening around 5:45 pm a Middlesboro ATV rider ended up getting stranded on what is known as the beltline levee cut. With the heavy rain, the normal crossing became impassable for the youth. A elderly couple passing by noticed the ATV rider trying to keep himself and the ATV from being swept down the creek and was attempting to get help by motioning to passing motorists for help. Off duty MPD Officer Floyd Patterson and Mctv22 owner Frank Smith were on their way home to Ambleside when they noticed the couple and the stranded juvenile. Upon assessing the situation Officer Patterson contacted Officer Tom Busic which arrived on scene and contacted the Bell County rescue squad and the Middlesboro Fire department. They retrieve the juvenile and the ATV by using the wrench on the squad truck and the firemen using a rope to secure the juvenile. With both the departments working together they prevented what could’ve been a bad accident.
