A female cop from New York has turned out to be Wonder Woman after her unbelievable rescue act to save a boy after she put her life on line.
Hastings-on-Hudson Police Officer Jessie Ferreira Cavallo was on her way to work when she saw a boy along the Saw Mill River Parkway in Yonkers. The youngster climbed the guardrail up and jumped a few feet from the overpass.
Without wasting any time, she just jumped to save the young boy. She recalled: “Everything happened so fast and I think my adrenaline was pumping so high.
“He just climbed up and jumped off.”
She continued: “I wasn’t thinking too much. I just knew, when I looked down and saw him … he looked dead. I couldn’t see anything other than blood. I thought to myself, ‘He needs help. I need to help him.’”
Luckily, her colleague, also supported her. “Both me and her together, we were able to aid him and assist him,” said Carvallo. “We were talking to each other like we worked together.”
The two then put a neck brace and a splint on the unresponsive boy. The boy opened his eyes and he was then rushed to he hospital.
Meanwhile, Cavallo only realized what she did the next day. She said: “Friday, after this whole thing happened, I went to work and worked to 11 p.m.
“I didn’t realize what was going on until yesterday. That’s when it hit me. I didn’t realize how high it was. It seemed doable. It didn’t seem that high. I thought I jumped over a brick wall, or a cement barrier. It was so fast. It was more like tunnel vision. I saw the boy and I needed to get to him. I didn’t see anything else.”
Meanwhile, the boy is now recovering and she hopes to visit him soon. “I really want to know how he is doing,” she said.
“I don’t know anything about him. I don’t know his name or anything. I just hope that he’s doing well. I just want to give him a hug.”
Interestingly, this is not the first time she has done such a thing. She has already received six lifesaving awards in her seven years of service. A true Wonder Woman, indeed!!
