Firefighters are some of the bravest men and women in public service. They put their lives on the line to save innocent people. We truly owe them a lot.
Sadly, one firefighter in New York was attacked by a bunch of kids when he decided to help out. The firefighter was defending an elderly couple that the kids were verbally attacking.
"A New York City Firefighter sustained a concussion and several broken teeth Saturday after police say he was assaulted while trying to stop a group of teens from harassing an elderly couple," reported Fox.
The firefighter stepped in to defend the couple when he was attacked. He was rushed to a hospital and treated for his injuries.
"The man reportedly tried to intervene -- and police say that’s when one unidentified member of the group punched the firefighter “with a closed fist,” knocking him to the ground. The suspect then continued assaulting the man while he was down, officials said," according to Fox.
Now, police are asking for help. They are circulating pictures of the teens and trying to identify them. Please share this story and help bring justice to this horrible situation.
No arrests had been made as of Tuesday and police say anyone with information should call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-8477.
