Standing O is always fair — even if a hero just happens to be from Staten Island — and a boost is a boost is a boost. Verizon employee and Staten Island resident, Steven Baudille was on his way to a job when he happened to see smoke spewing from a basement window in a Midwood apartment house. He flagged down two officers from the 61st Precinct, PO Melissa Waldon and PO Andrew Gibbs, and between the three courageous superheroes they managed to pull Offir Shachar out the window of the blazing inferno to safety. “If it wasn’t for the two cops and this Verizon guy, this guy would have been dead,” said a witness. “The noble actions of these three prevented an otherwise potentially tragic outcome,” said Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz (D-Sheepshead Bay), as he presented the three protectors with citations. It’s three cheers all around.
