Good Samaritans Rescue Woman Run Over By Vehicle in Red Hook
Their quick thinking and actions saved a Hudson Valley resident. It's really commendable when someone decides to help out because unfortunately, we are stuck in a world where everyone just pulls out their phone instead and does nothing.
Not only did two good samaritans help out, but they went above and beyond and saved the life of someone. Kudos to them for being amazing and a big thank you for the act of bravery.
