City officials say the Newark mayor came to the aid of a pedestrian struck by a car and helped the man into an ambulance.
Shortly after, Booker tweeted:
“God bless my residents. Pulled up on pedestrian/vehicle accident. We got man stabilized & into ambulance. He’ll b OK. Thanx [sic] 2 all who helped
I appreciate the driver. Man ran into traffic. Driver did the right thing & stayed & helped me & others aid man until medical help arrived.
There is nothing more uplifting to the soul than human kindness and determined decency.
In a cynical world, good deeds resound more loudly than any negative works.”
