It’s the kind of reunion that warms the heart. It goes beyond the typical backyard BBQ, with family and their often – unique – personalities on full display. It pulls at the heartstrings like a depressing drama, but it also shines light into the darkness which is the modern world. It reflects well on humanity while it highlights the horrors we face each day.
Little Isaiah Was Out For A Ride With This Dad
When little Isaiah Ronmen Martinez went out driving with his dad one hot summer night, the eight-year-old couldn’t have imagined the tragedy that was about to befall him. His father, Carlos, lost control of the minivan he was driving and it flipped. Both he and his son were ejected from the vehicle. Dad did not survive. Isaiah, on the other hand, was badly injured and trapped under the twisted metal of the wreck.
Then Tragedy Struck
Then off-duty NYC detective Kevin Stewart showed up. He had no connection to the crash, but he knew he had to help. Discovering where Isaiah was, he made sure the boy was rescued and immediately transported to the hospital. In an interview with a local TV station, Stewart explained what happened when he first came upon the child:
“He looked at me and said, ‘I don’t want to die.’ I just said, ‘No, you’re not going to die, not today. We are here, we’re going to help,’”
