FRYEBURG, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The cry for “help” came from Fryeburg police officer Dale Stout. It was visceral and carried over the water, throwing Paul Hall into fight or flight mode. He was already trying to make sense of the jarring noise he’d just heard on the Saco River Saturday. “I was still a long way back and that’s when I heard a loud bang,” Hall said while taking a work break at Patriot Subaru in Saco Monday. For Hall, the next moment was pure instinct.
(NEWS CENTER) -- One of the two Fryeburg police officers hurt in Saturday’s violent boat crash on the Saco River left the hospital Monday. The officers were rescued by two men in a canoe , who helped call for help on Stout’s radio and waited with the men until another rescue boat arrived. Stout and Desjardins were airlifted to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, Maine. Stout, a full-time firefighter in Biddeford, works for Fryeburg Police during summer months.
FRYEBURG, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — Every year Fryeburg's police chief knows the town's first responders will battle the Saco River for someone's life. Joshua Potvin was not prepared for Saturday's accidents. "It's a tough time," Chief Potvin said after he and many others pushed through a sleepless night. "It's the first time one of our water crafts has been involved."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
