Yonkers law enforcement officials jumped into motion, and with the assistance of three good Samaritans, lifted the automotive off of them.
For the primary time since July, the lads reunited with the infant and her mother.

One of many good Samaritans that got here to the rescue stated he’s amazed at their restoration.
“I would have never thought in a million years both of them would have been like they are right now,” Michael Larusso stated.
