Injured DPW worker benefit

DUNMORE, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) - A DPW worker — who was seriously hurt on the job in January — is still recovering from his injuries.
 
40-year-old Mike Butler suffered a traumatic brain injury — after he fell off a garbage truck in Dunmore.
 
He was flown to Philadelphia — where he underwent multiple surgeries and was in a coma for more than a month.
 
Today people from Butler’s hometown packed into Carmella’s Restaurant to show their support for his family.
 
The Rotary Club of Dunmore is donating a portion of the proceeds from this spaghetti dinner to help cover Butler’s medical bills and other expenses.
