A NYPD officer helped save four people from a devastating car wreck in Queens on Friday.
Officer Ryan O’Connor was driving on the Laurelton Parkway near the Francis Lewis Boulevard exit when he witnessed the aftermath of the accident at about 2 p.m.
“It looked like it went airborne off the median, between two trees,” O’Connor told the Post.
The cop, who served as EMS chief in Suffolk for five years, jumped out of his car and began moving the injured passengers to safety.
He encountered the first two victims — a 67-year-old man and 39-year-old woman — in the front seat.
“They were semi-conscious,” O’Connor said. “He had a fractured femur, and they had both hit their heads. Their mouths and ears were full of blood.”
Passing motorists witnessed O’Connor’s heroics and rushed to help him retrieve a 14-year-old girl from the back seat.
The fourth passenger, a 16-year-old boy, was found wandering nearby in a daze.
It was not clear whether he had fled the wreck or been thrown clear, authorities said.
The two adult victims and the teen boy were rushed to Jamaica Hospital, while the teen girl went to Long Island Jewish Hospital. All four are expected to survive.
