MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTNH) — A school resource officer is being credited with saving the life of a teacher at Vinal Tech High School in Middletown on Tuesday.

State police say the incident happened in a carpentry shop. A teacher got his hand stuck in a wood planer, which resulted in partial amputation.

State police say trooper Alejandro Bugatti quickly applied a tourniquet to the teacher’s arm to prevent rapid blood loss. We’re told class was not in session during the time of the accident.
