Four Falmouth Police Officers Lift SUV, Paramedic Pulls Victim Free

 June 2, 2021

When adrenaline is pumping, first responders have the ability to do amazing things to save a life, especially when they are all working together. Four Massachusetts police officers were able to lift an SUV enough for one man to be pulled to safety.

Late Night Car Wreck

According to the Boston Herald, Falmouth police received a phone call from a woman who lived on JudyAnn Drive in East Falmouth, stating she heard screaming. The man's screams were coming from the intersection of East Falmouth Highway and her street.

The call came into officers around 2:00 a.m. When police officers got to the scene, they found a 2004 GMC Envoy SUV that had crashed and rolled over.

According to the Boston Herald, four officers approached the vehicle and could see that the man was suffering from potentially life-threatening injuries.

Getting Him Free

Officers knew that the only way to get him out from under the car would be to lift it just enough for the Falmouth Fire/ Rescue operator to pull him out. So officers Christopher Livingston, Joshua Oliver, Stephen Senior, and Tyler Narbonne worked together to lift the car just enough for the paramedic to get him free.

According to Falmouth Police Department, the man, who was later identified as Anthony J. Gonsalves, 26, was sent to an off Cape medical facility for the treatment of his injuries. Initially, he had gone to the Falmouth Hospital via ambulance after being freed from under the SUV.

According to authorities, they believe that the crash resulted from Gonsalves driving too fast on wet roads. As a result, they believe he lost control as he approached the intersection, which caused him to leave the highway and roll the SUV over.

Working Together To Safe A Life

Law enforcement officers and paramedics often work together at crash sites to get victims out of vehicles and to safety. These officers went above and beyond to act quickly to save this man's life. But, picking an SUV up, even just a little bit, is no easy feat.

The timing of the lift and the paramedic pulling him out had to be perfect. These men all worked bravely and heroically to free the trapped man.

  1. Please, please, please. whomever does the proof reading - make sure the words are spelled correctly...It spoils any credibility of the article when the spelling is so easily checked!!!

  2. Well I wonder if they will be recognized as hero’s and with a parade? I know there won’t be any monetary payment!!!
    But good work officers you are to commended for your job well done!!!

    1. Yes, and they do a lot for jobs well done and don't get any thank you's for it. I don't understand this attack on police that is happening in many places these days. Yes, there has been a few who overstepped their duty but we must remember they are the very few and not the norm. My next door neighbor is a retired policeman and is very good to me. I am 82 and sometimes I get things like salt for my water softener and he will put it in for me as I cannot lift the bag with an old back injury.

  3. kudos to the four Falmouth Officers !! You are a true testament to what our public servants step out onto the streets to do daily. without our brave law enforcement and emt's we would be in a real jam. I pray every day for the Lord to keep a hedge of protection around our first responders. God Bless each of you ! Lisa J

  4. Reminds me of the great northeast US blackout in the late 1960s, although not a direct immediate life and death situation. In the total electrical failure traffic was stuck in backups for hours. I was a graduate student at MIT and my dorm was just by the Harvard Bridge between Cambridge and Boston. Drivers trying to get across the bridge were blocked by several drivers who had left their cars, locked and in park gear. We formed a group and physically moved those deserted vehicles onto the curbs, freeing traffic. Also serving coffee, etc. to long immobilized drivers and buses. Proud of those Falmouth first responders for their critical actions.

  5. I'm grateful every day of my life for these brave men and women who often do the impossible and create miracles! God bless the good guys!

  6. I say great job to the Officers and Firemen that saved this man's life. It is a good thing the city didn't send out a couple of Social Workers to take care of this call. Good luck with that. The man today would be pushing up daises. Again Great Job, thank you. You saved my brother from another Mother.

    1. I agree with you Ken...if their police force was "Defunded" and they would send out social workers....that young man would still be crushed under his vehicle. God Bless our men in Blue!!!

    2. I studied some sociology in college and considered going into social work, Ken. But I can guarantee you what I learned did NOT prepare me, nor does it prepare anyone, to deal with the kind of things our brave and courageous law enforcement and first responders are called on to do every day! And anybody who thinks it's a solution, needs to go take a few classes!
