PSEG workers aid in rescue of baby osprey

Some PSEG Long Island workers helped a baby osprey in trouble on the East End. 



In the video from East Marion, you can see a baby osprey's feet tangled in a fishing line. 



Wildlife experts did not have the right equipment to free the bird, so they called PSEG Long Island. News 12 has learned it was a volunteer from the Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue that cut the osprey free. 



The company showed up with a bucket truck to help out.
