The 911 board was all lit up, numerous calls coming in for an unconscious, unresponsive child on Fulton Street at Rockwell Place in downtown Brooklyn at about 12:10PM on Saturday.
FDNY members from Engine Company 226 rushed to the scene to find some good Samaritans, one of whom actually jumped off of his rented Revel electric moped, trying desperately to help a visibly distraught woman and her two year old son, both of whom were down on the damp, cold sidewalk.
New Yorks’ Bravest wasted no time as they sprang into action, providing critical aid to the toddler as he lay on the sidewalk, while several of the people who had stopped to help did their best to comfort the crying mother.
Firefighter Neves then lifted the child in his arms and took him to an ambulance from the Brooklyn Hospital that arrived on the scene. Both mother and son were whisked away to a local hospital, for what we all hope to be a positive outcome. The exact circumstances surrounding this tragic incident are not known at this time.
