A Lakewood man is being hailed as a hero for saving the life of the man who fell into a cement truck in Lakewood, TLS has learned exclusively.
When Moshe K. was passing by the construction site on 14th Street, he heard screams, and went to investigate. That’s when he found the man stuck inside the truck.
The Good Samaritan immediately asked the man what he can do to stop the truck, and the patient – badly injured – told him to look for a red shutoff button.
Moshe climbed inside the truck and located the button, shutting off the machine. He then called emergency personnel.
Though the patient suffered severe injuries, the Good Samaritan’s actions definitely prevented further injury.
The patient was flown to JSUMC for treatment.
