VIDEO: Car Hits Grandmother, Toddlers
NEW YORK — More than 20 people worked together to save a grandmother and two toddlers when an out-of-control car backed into them, pushed them through a fence then pinned them underneath the vehicle.
According to WPIX, it happened on a crowded Brooklyn street and was caught on surveillance video.
Dozens of witnesses rushed to pick up the car.
A man who owns the dry cleaner across the street told WPIX, “(The people who helped) don’t even say hi to each other sometimes in the morning, then all of a sudden they’re fighting to pick up the car off the person and the (babies). They risked their own life because some of them got third degree burns trying to pull the car up.”
The victim suffered numerous broken bones, but all three victims were listed in stable condition at an area hospital and were expected to recover.
Police determined it was just an accident and no charges will be filed against the driver.
