    WNEP needs to do away with Talkback. So tired of seeing insensitive and unintelligent comments on their stories, especially ones that involve a tragedy such as someone losing their lives. This was a man, working hard, making a living who won’t be going home. I work in construction. How dare you people joke about this or make it political. Lowest of the low.

God be with Andrews family, a hard working man providing a good honest life for his family. They are proud of Andrew. Unlike your family, ashamed of there own
