Lakewood: Good Samaritans Save Children Pinned By Car


lakewood-township-committeeWABC News reports: Two young children are fortunate to be alive after getting hit by a car. As fate would have it, the two perfect people whose skills were needed arrived on the scene moments after the accident.

The first was a man who raised the Honda Accord with a jack. The other is an EMT who helped to keep the children alive until an ambulance arrived.

7-year old Sury Paskus and her brother, 2-year old Ben, were then rushed to the hospital.

The accident happened on route 9, the children struck while walking with their mother. The kids suffered life-threatening injuries.
Aharon Weichbrod was driving just behind the Honda Accord.

“She turned in front of me, hit the kids, I pulled over, kids were stuck, so I helped,” Weichbrod said.

So began the town’s miracle.

“The kids were not breathing… the guy came, stabilized the car. I was with the kids, they lifted the car, the kids started breathing again,” Weichbrod said.

The identity of the man who worked that jack is not known.

“And so I say, come out, come out where ever you are, ’cause we want to honor you,” Lakewood Mayor Isaac Akerman said.

Lakewood is heaping praise on Aharon and they want to honor the man who’s work on the jack gave Ben and Sury also helped to save their lives.

“He really had a feeling for someone else, and therefore put his heart and soul into it,” Lakewood committeeman Manashe Miller said.

Their efforts are paying off. The children are critical but stable at Jersey Shore University Medical Center.

  1. I feel that a Jewish website should not use the term Good Samaritan. It is a term used in the bible to glorify the Samaritans (who constantly made problems for the Jews) and show how bad the Jews were.

  2. I echo #2’s point… We should not mindlessly use idioms withot knowing their origin… I this case, “Good Samaritan” is a totally Christian concept.

  3. I was going to make the same comment as Dave the Mave. Yushka used the term to disparage the Yidden. Please change the headline.

  4. “it should ba a lesson to allways wear a hewlmet whyilke bicycleing”

    What are you talking about? The baby was in a stroller!! Should he walk around all day in a helmet?

  5. What a wonderful story. Now, after all quiets down and the children are doing well BE”H, let us try to find out not so much as to how it happened but why did it happen, and I don’t mean the physical circumstances. Our Neviim have very harsh words and dire predictions for those of us that look towards externel reasons and ignore the spiritual reasons as to why negative things take place

  6. #15 the Christian missionary is appearing again.

    After a little quiet, the missionary is back.

    Dear Please be aware. Thank you.
