PHOTO: One of the Good Samaritans Who Saved the 2 Pinned Children; Can You Identify The Other?

PHOTO: Medical personnel and police say it was the quick thinking of two good Samaritans who saved the lives of two young children pinned under the car in yesterday’s tragic accident.

The Frum (Jewish) man, pictured center with the sunglasses on his head, was one of the two good Samaritans who were passing by when they witnessed the unthinkable and tragic event unfolding in front of their eyes.

But their quick thinking undoubtedly saved the lives of the two young children, who were reportedly unconscious when they were pulled from under the vehicle.

The unidentified man passing the scene immediately got out of his car, popped the trunk of the vehicle which was on top of the children, removed the car’s jack, and began jacking up the car, while the man pictured, assisted in jacking up the car and help protect the children. The unidentified man who grabbed the jack, immediately left the scene.

Within seconds of jacking up the vehicle, the first Hatzolah members arrived, and began administering oxygen to the children.

The children remain in serious but stable condition at Jersey Shore Medical Center this morning.

If anyone has information of the man who left the scene after jacking up the car, please notify TLS, so the individual can be properly recognized for his heroic deeds. TLS.

  1. It’s so refreshing to hear about someone who went beyond the call of duty, did whatever he had to do and didn’t wait around for recognition, rewards or honor. His name isn’t on the latest dinner invitation and he isn’t the subject of any articles. He did the right thing because it was the right thing to do. Kol Hakovod. I don’t know who he is, but he seems to be someone I would like to know!

  2. His name is ari weichbrodt,he just moved to sterling forest from Miami, florida,hes 1 of the original members of Miami hatzalah,I know him very well,he’s making a bar mitzvah next week and his wife just had twins!

  3. Hats off to Reb Mottchy Kaszirer shlita…the true askan of lakewood….as the Ramban in last weeks parsha states “from the great nissim of the Ribono Shel Olam we recognize the small ones”. L’havdil by reb mottchy from his big askanus we recognize his non stop behind the scenes help for so many people in lakewood. Keep up your avodas hakodesh!!!

  4. hes not the only person to be recognized,a different person walking by quickly jacked up the car,and another person started treating the 2nd unconscious child

  5. Wonderful action and a great Zchus – to #1 alot of the people whose names are on dinner inviations are also wonderful and most do not want to be in the limelight but do it only for the sake of the organization and give up time, money and put upwith a lot of flack (as in your comment ) Kol Hakovod to all of them and the many other unsung heroes

  6. hashem worked it all out their was a recently new arrived paramedic who just moved up from florida to lakewood and a emt from ny {SK} who was the 2nd on scene while one jacked up the van the other 2 worked on the 2 children
    the refua was in place before the makka

  7. I know this man, he recently moved here with his family and is still trying to get his children into yeshiva here! they are an amazing family and as you see they have big hearts and will do anything to help you out! He never looks for kavod or even thanks for all that he does. In this Zechus may his children get into yeshiva as soon as possible.
    He does not want his name mentioned.

  8. to Dovid: our hatzolah members are trained to help
    while a everyday person is not, this person who stopped to help out is a true hero. he didn’t have to help but did.

  9. Would love to shake this man’s hand! I don’t believe there is any amount of thanks that would truly recognize this man for the heroic moves he made that day. Bless you sir!

  10. ..lets not forget our selfless Hatzolah members who save countless lives every day

    What about Lakewood EMS, Lakewood Vol. First AId, and Lakewood Police.

  11. I’m lucky enough to have professionally worked alongside him. As well form an amazing relationship with his family.
    Aleha ha-shalom
