NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

New York State Police Trooper Winston I. Martindale, Jr. died Wednesday, July 24, 2013, of complications from an on-duty injury he sustained in 2011.

Police say that On May 9, 2011, while responding to the crash of two small airplanes in the town of Waywanda, in Orange County, Martindale fell on a piece of equipment, causing internal bleeding to his abdomen.

Though seriously injured, Martindale struggled with heavy wreckage to assist victims of the plane crash and stayed at the crash scene for six hours.

Ultimately, both pilots of the single engine airplanes died.

After suffering through several serious medical procedures to combat his injuries and further complications, Martindale died following surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a statement saying, in part: "Trooper Martindale courageously battled serious medical hardships for more than two years, and passed away on Wednesday. He was just 40 years old – a tragic, heartbreaking loss. We will never forget Trooper Martindale’s selfless sacrifice, dedication, and bravery in rushing into a dangerous situation to protect the lives of others. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my deepest condolences and send my thoughts and prayers to the loved ones that Trooper Martindale left behind.”

Trooper Martindale was a seven-year police veteran and as a member of the U.S. Army Reserves, he served in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.

He is survived by his wife, Michelle, 19-year-old son, Kyle, 15-year-old daughter, Moriah.

Service arrangements for Trooper Winston I. Martindale Jr. have been set for Monday, July 29, 2013 and Tuesday, July 30, 2013.

    Renting out someone's apartment is an easy way to get an inexpensive place to stay if you're a tourist, and cheaper and more convenient than most hotels. But now the government is stepping in and trying to get a handle on a booming business that may not be playing by the rules. State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is squaring off in court with multi-million dollar Internet company Airbnb.
