Passerby keeps victim calm after MVA till help arrives

On Friday, June 14th at about 11:30am the Allamuchy Fire Department and Allamuchy-Green First Aid were alerted for an MVA with injuries. 

Prior to the alert, a member of the fire department happened to stumble upon the incident and immediately pulled over to render aid.  As the fire department was being dispatched, firefighter Adam Jones was assessing the scene to help both the patients and fire personal arriving on scene.

In addition to Adam, a passerby was also on location answering questions from 911 dispatch and checking on victims. Adam witnessed the woman passerby rendering verbal aid to one of the victims in the car.  The man was very shaken up, and she was able to keep him calm. 

Chief Berkenbush arrived moments later and began providing direction for the incoming first due units.

As the first due apparatus arrived on scene with paramedics, the victims from the crash were quickly assessed and transported by the First Aid Squad. The scene was cleaned up and turned over to NJSP for investigation.  Unfortunately, the name of our mystery woman helping keep the 1 patient calm was never captured, and we never had the chance to thank her. 

Whether she was an Allamuchy resident or from a different country, she stopped her life for a moment
to assist another person need. Thank you, mystery woman, you helped in more ways than one.
