To the rescue -- Chiropractor credited with saving life of elderly womanPosted: Updated:
A chiropractor in North Bergen has been credited with saving the life of an elderly woman.
Dr. Gerard Busacco was seeing patients last month at the Terrace Apartments, having his usual group of people that he meets with.
When one elderly woman didn't show, he grew concerned. The elderly woman wasn't answering phone calls or knocks at her door, so Busacco grabbed a building employee and found the woman face down on the floor in her apartment.
They stayed with her until help arrived.
"The bottom line is that it's a good day for the township of North Bergen and North Bergen housing when you can save one of your senior citizens of North Bergen. It's a good day," says Busacco.
According to doctors, the woman would have died if Busacco hadn't found her.
Doctors say the woman is heading home just in time for the birth of her first grandson.
