The residue floodwaters of Hurricane Ida are still leaving tragedy in their wake. Fortunately, Good Samaritans help those in need, even if it means putting themselves in danger's way, which is what one New Jersey cop did.

The Ewing Police Department shared a clip on Facebook of police officer Justin Quinlan's heroic act. The officer came across a railing while seemingly stuck in and navigating the strong current with a torch.

Noticing another individual in the distance and holding onto the guard rail, Quinlan began to crawl on it towards her. On his way to her, he empathetically expressed:

“Hold on dear, don’t move, okay.”

He helped the lady navigate the currents and keep herself safe by instructing her to straddle onto the railing. Eventually, around half an hour later, the Ewing Fire Department rescued them.

The comment section of this Facebook video was full of love. Many stated how touched they felt by the incident, while others showed their appreciation towards the first responders, both the police officer and the fire department.

The Amazon employee kindly warned her that this could be dangerous.

One individual expressed how terrified they would have been in that same situation. The post has become extremely popular, gathering just over 400 reactions and 15,000 views so far.

The police department included a statement along with this recording revealing that their force was out in full swing on September 1, 2021, with various calls about vehicles stuck in the floodwaters. This is what Quinlan was responding to with the text reading:

"We... recognize Ewing Fire Department Captain Kyle Brower and Firefighter Oscar Estrada who... executed the rescue."

They then praised both the brave police officer as well as the fire department for their collaborative efforts. It has been reported that 52 individuals have passed due to the storm in the Northeast.

One doesn't have to be saving other's lives from catastrophic events to be a good person. Sometimes, some loving advice can go a long way, which is the route an Amazon delivery driver took when visiting a customer's house.

In a video shared on TikTok, the 28-year-old worker, Kelsey, could be seen through a new homeowner's doorbell camera, informing her that she has no number on her house. The Amazon employee kindly warned her that this could be dangerous.

Kelsey explained that it would be difficult for the paramedics to find her house if there were a medical emergency. It looks like this driver and officer have one thing in common: a heart of gold.
