On Tuesday December 2nd, a 10 year old girl and her pregnant mother were struck by a Honda Odyssey while crossing 60th Street in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn.  F.D.N.Y. Engine Company 247 was the first on scene and successfully rescued the mother who was pinned under the vehicle, using their 24' Portable Ladder and Standpipe Rollups.  This evolution is taught in our Man vs Machine class.  See the link below for the article in the NY Daily News.
