When a woman lost control of her car and drove into a Hamilton lake last February, health care professionals from Capital Health and other area first responders jumped into action to rescue the driver and her passenger from the icy water and provide lifesaving care after the accident.
On the floor of the New Jersey State Assembly chambers on Thursday, June 21, Assemblyman Dan Benson (D-14) paused the voting session to honor
all who were involved in this dramatic rescue. Representing Capital Health were Dr. Dominick Eboli, director of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Trauma Center at Capital Health Regional Medical Center; Jim Boozan, divisional director of Emergency Medical Services; paramedic Lupe Verrecchio; and trauma nurses Paige Disney and Heather Hendrickson.
Other local leaders were also on hand to recognize the group, including Senator Linda Greenstein (D-14); Assemblyman Wayne DeAngelo (D-14); Trenton Mayor Reed Gusciora; and Assemblywoman Verlina Reynolds-Jackson (D-15).
