‘It’s My Job’ ➠ Heroic Police Officer Michael Keane Reacts After Helping Train Crash Survivors
A New Jersey police officer called in to “Fox and Friends” this morning, detailing his heroic actions to save passengers aboard the Amtrak train that crashed near Philadelphia last night.
“It’s my job. That’s what I was put on this planet to do,” said Officer Michael Keane.
As of this morning, six deaths have been confirmed in the crash, with more than 140 injured.
Keane said he was riding in the last car when the crash happened. He said the scene was “chaotic,” so he tried to assess the situation and quickly grabbed a flashlight from a conductor who was shaken up.
Keane said the first thing he did was give himself and his fiance a “quick check” and then went “to work” helping others.
He said he observed a wide array of injuries, including scrapes and bruises, but also very bad lacerations. Keane said he’s very sore, with pain throughout his body this morning.
Steve Doocy asked Keane what he thought this morning when he saw the scenes of twisted metal.
“The guardians were working overtime last night. I had them out in full force. I didn’t see that image until this morning. From that aerial view there? Luck,” said Keane, who was on his way home from the Police Unity Tour in Washington, D.C. over the weekend. More
