Trump's son reportedly 'ran into traffic' to save woman who passed out on the street
The 34-year-old businessman and television personality, Eric Trump, assisted a pedestrian who passed out near a New York subway station.
The Washington Examiner was contacted by an eyewitness who saw Eric "almost getting hit by a bicyclist [as he] shouted at the ambulance to get its attention."
The person, who prefers to remain anonymous but is adamant that they have no connection to the Trump family, commended Eric for his sense of urgency.
His bravery paid off, and an ambulance arrived to assist the woman. The observer added that Eric and his security detail left the scene shortly after. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa
