Newark mayor says he helped injured pedestrian

(CNN) - Cory Booker, the Newark, New Jersey, mayor who in April carried a woman out of a burning building, may have been involved in another incident, this time involving a pedestrian who was apparently struck by a vehicle.

"God bless my residents," Booker posted on Twitter on Friday. "Pulled up on pedestrian/vehicle accident. We got man stabilized & into ambulance. He'll b OK. Thanx 2 all who helped."

    The rescuer: one who will dash in and "rescue" people whenever the moment is opportune to his or herself, that is. He or she then gains gratification from basking in the glory of his or her humanitarian actions.

    Even though he made those DUMB REMARKS earlier I still like this Mayor. He's authentic and more down to earth than most other politicians out there... Keep being REAL!!

    BookerMan comes to the rescue again. And, he does it without a cape or a mask. A real American super hero, straight of a comic book. I'd bet little Corey like Green Lantern when he was a kid.

    Wonder if he follows trouble or if trouble follows him? Glad he's there and willing to help.

    Most politician wouldn't even make a 911 call. Especially the republicans.

    He has always a good heart of helping, but when it comes on talking, one should expect a different story.

    Keep an eye on Mayor Booker. He may be President of the U.S in the future.
