A woman and two children were run down by a car Friday afternoon in East Williamsburg, suffering broken bones, scratches and bruises.
Following the wild and horrible crash, a crowd of strangers came to the rescue.
Bystanders heroically lifted the car with their hands, freeing the two young children and a grandmother.
“We all just picked it up, we just put our hands underneath it and lifted it,” Edwin Padua told CBS 2′s Derricke Dennis. “There was kids under there, you could hear them screaming. You could hear the child screaming, [we] had to get them out.”
The victims are 52-year-old Elizabeth Castillo, her 3-year-old grandson Tyrese and a 17-month-old baby girl who was in a crushed stroller.
The victims are all at Bellevue Hospital, listed as stable but critical because of their numerous injuries.
Just goes to show what happens when we come together to help others in need….the results can be life-saving.
