A firefighter with the FDNY was forced to treat his own daughter after she was chased into traffic and hit by a car — and confronted her alleged attacker in court on Monday.
Firefighter Omar Wilkes made sharp eye contact with Kevin Ramathal in Queens Criminal Court following the December 6th incident that led to Ramathal’s arrest.
Wilks’ daughter, Amara, was seriously injured after Ramathal made verbal threats and chased her into traffic. She was struck by a car and suffered severe fractures.
In a twist of fate, Amara’s father would come to her rescue.
‘’’Daddy am I going to die?’ That’s what my daughter asked me,” Wilks told Ramtahal in the courtroom.
Wilks hunted down Ramathal and eventually led police to him. Heading into the courtroom after the arrest, Wilks was determined to see the incident to the end.
“My daughter… she was on the brink of death, the day she was attacked by this criminal,” he said. “I’m seeking justice for my daughter.”
According to the Daily Mail, Ramtahal, who was held on $2,500 bail, is facing charges of endangering the welfare of a child and reckless endangerment.
