“You Raise Your Kids Hoping [They will] be Quality Human Beings, and Something Like this Validates That. We Couldn’t be Prouder of Them”

On 25 June 2014, brothers Michael Tirado, age 19, and Nicholas Tirado, age 14, were walking home on Slater Boulevard in Midland Beach, Staten Island, New York, when they heard a woman shrieking for help. Her idling car was rolling into the highly trafficked Slater Boulevard. They tried to stop the car by grabbing onto the trunk, which was open, but they could not stop it. Michael then jumped into the car and stopped it and turned its engine off. In the back seat, an infant was sleeping in a car seat. The woman thanked the boys and then drove away. The boys’ father, Joseph Tirado, said, “They came home and told me the story without thinking anything of it. But I said, ‘No, this is actually a really cool thing.’ I was shocked when I heard it.” Michael said, “If you see something and you can help — you should. We’re lucky. It could’ve been much worse.” A neighbor who witnessed the rescue said that the woman was carrying groceries to her car when it started rolling. Joseph Tirado said, “You raise your kids hoping [they will] be quality human beings, and something like this validates that. We couldn’t be prouder of them.”

“There are Still People in This World Who Do Care”

On 12 October, 2014, Matthew, the son of Wendi Ruiz, lost his wallet as he left one job at Angelina’s in Tottenville on Staten Island, New York, and was headed to his second job at TGI Fridays by the Staten Island Mall in Staten Island, New York. Inside his wallet were all his ID papers and $260 cash. Fortunately, a man named John saw Matthew’s wallet and picked it up. Kyle, John’s son, tried to find Matthew’s phone number on the Internet but was unsuccessful. No problem. Kyle drove to an address they found in the wallet and returned Matthew’s wallet to his mother, Wendi Ruiz. Wendi wrote in the Staten Island Advance (Staten Island, New York), “He returned Matt’s wallet with all the money and cards intact. What a nice kid! There are still people in this world who do care. So the lesson here is to always have faith and pay it forward. Thanks, Kyle, what an angel you are.”

“She Would have Died if They had Not Put Their Heads Together and Responded like They Did”

On 11 October 2014 at Fogarty Creek State Park near Depoe Bay, Oregon, eight people were stranded on a rocky outcropping during high tide. Three people took their chances in the high water and surf, and a Coast Guard helicopter based in Newport rescued the others one by one. Two of those who took their chances in the surf presumably made it OK to shore, but a girl ran into problems. People on the beach formed a human chain and rescued her. Witness Ray Felle, age 67, of Portland, Oregon, said, “They worked together as a team; it was more like they were a rescue crew and they weren’t, they were just kids. These people handled themselves very well in doing what they needed to do to save this girl. She would have died if they had not put their heads together and responded like they did.” He added, “Even when they were in a group carrying her away, the waves came in again and swept them off their feet.” Depoe Bay Fire Chief Joshua L. Williams said, “The quick response by a helo out of Newport made all the difference. There were five frightened, cold, wet people stranded on those rocks, I needed a helo here in 10 minutes, not an hour. We depend on the USCG helo. The surf is too dangerous and too cold for firefighters to enter the water and time is not a luxury you have when performing rescues.”
