London Nurse Hailed As A "Hero" For Helping Accident Victims

In London, an off duty nurse rather new to the job proved heroic when she helped pull people from the wreckage of a car accident and administered first aid until ambulances arrived.

“I always appreciate hearing nice things from people I've helped, getting cards and thank you letters, but I'm not special," says Lucy Jay Bellinger, who works at Kingston Hospital. "I'm a nurse — I'm supposed to help people.”

Her father, John, said he was incredibly proud of his daughter.

“It's not a job, with her, it's a passion,” he said. “She would stay at the hospital all day and night if she could just to help people.

“She is a hero and she deserves the credit. She has helped so many people outside the house that it's almost like this is a second place of work for her.”
