New York's emergency management director has been fired by the governor after it was revealed he diverted rescue crews to his own house in the midst of Superstorm Sandy recovery.
Steven Kuhr, who was working in the state capital of Albany, reportedly told emergency management crews to go to his house in Long Island and clear a tree from his driveway.
The order was given as millions of people were without power and hundreds of other needed rescuing in the aftermath of the devastating storm that ravaged New Jersey and New York.
The New York Times reports that Mr Kuhr called the Suffolk County Office of Emergency Management after the storm and demanded county workers go to his home in East Northport and remove the downed tree.\
