VIDEO: Mayor and Committeeman Miller Thank One of the Heroes Who Saved Children Pinned Under Car; EMT Moved From Florida 6 Weeks Ago
EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: One of the Good Samaritans who helped save the two children pinned under a car yesterday, was identified as Aron Weichbrod – an EMT who moved from Florida just six weeks ago, and whose wife just gave birth to twins.
Aron and another unidentified Good Samaritan rolled up to the tragic scene yesterday afternoon to find the two small children crushed on top of each other, pinned underneath a car – and not breathing.
Weichbrod - an EMT for about 16 years, quickly went to tend to the children, while the other man grabbed the jack from the trunk of the car.
While the unidentified man jacked up the car, Aron held one of the children’s head while assisting the other man with the jack.
The children were freed, and one of them immediately began breathing.
“Once they got the jack up, the kid who was on top of the older one started breathing”, Aron told Mayor Akerman and Committeeman Miller, who went down to his home to personally thank him for his heroic acts.
But as soon as the car was up, the other man – who is being hailed as the ‘Angel from Heaven’, left the scene without a trace.
“He was a white man wearing a blue cap”, Aron said, adding that he couldn’t tell where he came from or where he had disappeared to.
The hero remains ‘at large’ today, but officials are determined to find him, and honor him.
“Come out come out wherever you are, because we want to honor you”, Mayor Akerman said.
Meanwhile, the Township will be honoring Weichbrod during the next Township Committee meeting, along with Lakewood First Aid, EMS and Hatzolah members for their involvement in the incident. TLS.
