Eric Trump, the president’s second oldest son, has turned into a first responder.
The story comes from Paul Bedard’s “Washington Secrets” column.
He reports Eric Trump in New York City “rushed to the aid of a woman who passed out near a train station, dodging rush-hour traffic to chase down a passing ambulance.”
It happened one day last week, but apparently Eric Trump made little of his efforts.
Citing a tipster who requested anonymity, Bedard said it happened while Trump and his security detail were outside of the F train stop near 57th Street and 6th Avenue.
“I watched as Eric looked up, spotted an ambulance slowly passing by on 6th, ran into traffic – almost getting hit by a bicyclist – and shouted at the ambulance to get its attention,” the observer told Washington Secrets.
“Not sure if the ambulance had been called for or if Eric managed to hail one out of the blue, but in any case his sense of urgency was clear and he succeeded in getting the paramedics to stop and tend to the woman,” the witness said.
Bedard reported the “Good Samaritan role” almost was unnoticed.
“I don’t know if anyone really noticed all of this going on; there wasn’t a crowd of people watching,” the source said.
Paramedics took over when they arrived, and Trump gave them the credit.
“I’m glad we were able to play a small role in getting help for the woman on 58th Street,” he told Secrets. “We just happened to be in the right place at the right time. I’m especially grateful to the EMTs who took over. It was certainly my first time hailing an ambulance in New York City.”
