YONKERS, NY – An officer made a daring rescue after she witnessed a boy jump off an overpass.

According to the Rockland/Westchester Journal News, Officer Jessie Ferreira was driving to work on Friday when she witnessed a 12-year-old boy jump over a guardrail and fall several feet onto concrete.

The officer immediately grabbed her first aid gear and jumped off after the boy, who “looked dead” on the ground below, according to the report.

Ferreira, with the help of a woman who was in a military uniform, rendered aid to the boy until an ambulance arrived.

“Friday, after this whole thing happened, I went to work and worked to 11 p.m.,” Ferreira told reporters on Saturday. “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.”

The boy was taken to a hospital with a broken arm, broken nose, and leg injuries, but is expected to survive, according to the report.

The boy had taken off from a center for special needs and vulnerable children when the incident occurred.
