Eric Trump played the role of good Samaritan last week when he ran through and dodged oncoming traffic to flag down a passing ambulance, aiding a woman who had passed out near a train station.
No doubt the Mueller investigation will now pivot to Trump’s jaywalking and whether or not the victim had Russian ties.
On a serious note, the President’s son and his security detail noticed the unidentified woman outside a train stop near 57th Street and 6th Avenue on Wednesday morning.
They stopped to offer help before Trump noticed an ambulance passing by. He then sprang into action.
“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,” an observer told Washington Secrets.

Trump and his team got back in their vehicle after paramedics arrived on the scene and took over. Not a word of what happened came out until one anonymous tipster spoke up.
Trump responded to the hubbub saying, “I’m glad we were able to play a small role in getting help for the woman on 58th Street.”
“We just happened to be in the right place at the right time,” he added giving credit to the real heroes. “I’m especially grateful to the EMTs who took over.”
“It was certainly my first time hailing an ambulance in New York City,” Trump said speaking of the unusual experience.

If the story sounds familiar, you might recall an incident that should make you think, ‘like father, like son.’
In the early ’90s, President Donald Trump stopped an active and violent mugging on the side of a New York City street, getting out of his limo after seeing an assailant with a baseball bat.
People are mocking Trump for saying he’d run into the school to stop the shooter today… BUT in 1991, he had his driver pull over his car to run out of it to stop a mugging.

Apparently saving people in need runs in the Trump family.
