Emergency personnel: Helmet saved Lakewood boy’s life

Emergency personnel tell TLS the helmet a Lakewood boy was wearing when he was struck by a vehicle, saved his life. 

“Had he not been wearing the helmet, we would have been looking at a funeral,” one first responder told TLS.

Upon impact, the 13-year-old flew onto the roof of the vehicle, was dragged, and then fell to the pavement.

“He took a nasty hit – there’s no question the helmet saved his life,” another responder said.

The boy last night underwent numerous testing, and appears to not have suffered any life-threatening injuries.

”He still needs Tefillos (prayers),” a friend of the family said.

    I’m not sure how in the day after you posted this , there are still kids riding WITHOUT helmets ??? I drove around this morning 1 out of 3 kids was wearing a helmet, Really ?? How can any parent let their kids ride a bike that way ?? A $20 helmet is cheaper than most co-pays R”L. Parents Please have Rachmanus on your children and enforce that they wear helmets !!!!
