Crumbling roads lead to ankle breakage
Poor lighting and shoddy roads in Hoboken
Hoboken411 reader Paul talks about an incident that took place last week near 9th & Grand.
Shoddy conditions all around led to his wife snapping her ankle!
“On Thursday night while walking to our car from Holy Thursday church services at about 8:50pm, my wife fell and broke her ankle while stepping off the curb to go to our car. The closest street lamp is at the other end of the block making this area extremely dark and the pavement is broken down to the cobblestones. This happened on the south side of 9th Street just west of Grand. I took following pictures the next day.”
Hoboken positives come from good Samaritans
“On the good side, there was a lady passing by on the other side of the street who came and stood with us until the ambulance came, making sure that my wife was protected from passing traffic as she lay on the street. I did not get her name but we are both very grateful. In addition the three EMS workers from the Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corp were professional, courteous and compassionate. We were very impressed.
