Officer rides lawnmower to work in snowstorm

MORGANTON, N.C. (CNN/WBTV) — A corrections officer in North Carolina was not going to miss work because of a snowstorm.

Officer Thomas McCall braved the snow and ice Thursday morning.

Knowing he couldn’t drive his car or walk, he rode his lawnmower to the prison where he works.

He had to stop and refuel but made it in about two hours. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
