Good Samaritans (attempt) to Help Injured Woman


Good Samaritans attempted to come to the rescue of an elderly lady this weekend when she was hit and pinned under a livery cab on Madison and 36th Street. However, the efforts done by the Samaritans were done in vain, as the woman died shortly after being rescued. The NY Post states, “A group of good Samaritans made a valiant effort to rescue a Manhattan jeweler who was pinned underneath a livery cab on Monday – lifting the vehicle and flipping it on its side in order to get to the elderly victim.

The driver of the livery cab remained at the scene and was cooperating with the police. However, the driver was charged with failure to yield to a pedestrian and failure to exercise due care. Also his TLC license has been suspended pending the result of an investigation into the accident. The driver itself had “a clean TLC for-hire vehicle license from September 2013 to September 2014, he then failed to renew it, officials said. But he got a new TLC license on October 14, 2014.

The company the victim owned declined to comment about her accident.
