The mayor of New Jersey's largest city again came upon a life-or-death emergency, but the hero was someone else.

Newark Mayor Cory Booker tweets that he was one of several people who helped stabilize a pedestrian hit by a car Friday. A spokeswoman says an Essex County detective who arrived first on the scene called 911, wiped blood from the face of the victim, poured water on his wounds and helped him lie still.

The spokeswoman says the mayor happened to pull up minutes later, alongside police and the ambulance that had been sent for.

Booker tweets that the driver also helped the victim.

In April, the 42-year-old Booker rushed into a burning home to save a woman, pushing aside his security detail who tried to hold him back.
