New York City Fireman Becomes Hero to Accident Victim in Queens

Auto Accident Attorney Queens NYWe all know about the accomplishments of New York’s Bravest, the New York City Fire Department (FDNY), but a driver in Queens knows firsthand how that bravery saves lives even when firemen are off-duty .

It was reported in yesterday’s New York Post that Kevin Mohr, a fireman in Corona, Queens, was off-duty driving to work when his brave instincts took over. He apparently saw a car in flames and upside down on the Clearview Expressway in Queens and went into action. With the assistance of other motorists, including another off-duty fireman from Brooklyn, John Riha, Mr. Mohr and the courageous group lifted the car up and flipped it onto its side. This act of bravery and personal sacrifice likely saved the life of the motorist, real estate agent Steven Kokotos.

Queens accidents on highways and local streets are all too common news stories affecting drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists. Shining acts of bravery, like the ones of firemen Kevin Mohr, and John Riha as well as other good samaritans, are the news stories we all need to hear about more often because they define what makes New York City great.
