Firemen revive 82-year-old during game

By Jackie Lupo

Quick action by two off-duty Yonkers firefighters saved the life of an 82-year-old man who went into cardiac arrest at the Ardsley High School homecoming game on Saturday, Sept. 20.

The firefighters, Lt. Mike Hanney and Lt. Tom Hewitt, are residents of Ardsley who have known each other since they were kids growing up in Yonkers. They’ve shared a lot over the years: both attended Sacred Heart High School in Yonkers, joined the Yonkers Fire Department (within two years of each other), and rose to the rank of lieutenant. Both men moved to the village about a dozen years ago, and have children in the school district. Fortunately, the two firefighters also like to watch football.

During the first half of the homecoming game between the Panthers and the Irvington Bulldogs, Hanney and Hewitt were standing by the end zone when they noticed people sprinting past them toward the bleachers.

72-year-old recalls firefighters’ heroic rescue from elevator

By Julian Caldwell

Anne Savarese-Brasino (center) stands with firefighters Brendan Woods, Jay Aluisio, Robert Gagliardi, Martin Gunther, Michael Gunther and J.P. Esposito, who were honored for saving her. Not pictured is firefighter Brian Woods.


“If you’re going to take me, take me now,” Anne Savarese-Brasino recalled telling God four months ago, during what she thought might be the last moments of her life. On May 14, at around 8 a.m., fire trapped her in an elevator in her two-floor townhouse on Turnberry Drive, within St. Andrew’s Golf Club.

Last Friday, Sept. 12, the 72-year-old recounted that experience — and the timely rescue that saved her — at the Hastings Volunteer Fire Department’s annual inspection, where the seven Uniontown Hose Co. 2 firefighters that first arrived on the scene were honored.

“It was a beautiful day,” said Savarese-Brasino, who lived alone in the house. “I had come downstairs to get my eye drops. I looked out for my cat, but she wasn’t outside. I usually feed her. And I took my eye drops and went back in the elevator, and I was going to go put them in and lie down and rest.” Read more >
