They were filming for a TV series called “Gravesend” when suddenly, the group fell into a real-life situation that was cut off from Hollywood.
Their instincts have kicked in, and a 14-year-old is living off of it.
“I heard a loud bang and went to the scene shouting, ‘Get a jack!’ but none come with jacks,” said actor John Camera. “[The teen] shouted and then he asked me, ‘Help me please! Please help me!'”
The boy was trapped under the SUV.
The incident happened three weeks ago. The group of good Samaritans was videotaped coming to his rescue.
They couldn’t get the boy out of the SUV, so they pulled the SUV away from him.
“Gravesend” actor Evan Sumner said: “We all helped lift that car with ease.
Actor Anthony Guarino said the SUV was removed without any problems as the team worked together.
“It grows like a feather,” he said. “For me, it was like nothing, and when we pushed it away, it flew. I thought we were Superman, I swear.”
Police say the 80-year-old driver behind the wheel told them her brakes stopped working when she ran over the teenager, who was walking his dog.
As soon as the actors lifted the SUV, his dog then crawled out from below.
They didn’t know the dog was down there.
“Then the dog ran out. It got stuck underneath the gearbox,” Camera said.
The 14-year-old boy remains hospitalized in critical condition but is said to be stable.
Actor William DeMeo said he loves the show’s characters, how easy it is for them to help others, especially in scary moments like these.
“The show was about Brooklyn in the ’80s, and growing up in this neighborhood, I remember people always, if they could help you, they would,” he said. “This isn’t just about the cast and crew… the people in the neighborhood are the same. The people who live around there and there are all involved and helping.”
The cast and crew are expected to visit the hospital as soon as he is healthy enough to take him for a visit.
“We pray for him and his family, we pray for his full and speedy recovery,” said a local council member. “He is still in the hospital and he is still fighting, and we are praying for a well-deserved break for him and his family.”
