Disabled vet freed after stair lift breaks
A disabled Shirley veteran who was trapped in his basement for five days is back above ground.
As News 12 has reported, Salvatore Papavero’s chair lift broke on Friday as it was taking him back upstairs.
After it broke, Papavero was confined to his basement kitchen and bathroom, with no bed.
The 86-year-old Korean War veteran obtained the stair lift through the Northport VA.
