Greek-American Driver Saved by Off-Duty Fireman After Queens Accident

QUEENS, NY – Off-duty FDNY fireman Kevin Mohr saved the life of Steven Kokotos, 49 after the latter’ Mercedes flipped over on a Queens highway.

“Kevin Mohr, assigned to Ladder 138 in Corona, saw a car in flames on the Clearview Expressway Sunday morning and rushed over to the wreckage, where fire was spreading from the engine,” the NY Post reported, adding “Steven Kokotos, 49, was still strapped in upside-down, bleeding from his head and gasping for air while crying, “Help, Help!”

Kokotos broke several bones and had a head injury. “It doesn’t seem like there’s any permanent damage to his head,” wife Cathy Kokotos told The Post on Tuesday.

Mohr, 29, who was joined by other motorists who stopped to help, including off-duty fireman John Riha, said “The fire was in the engine, getting progressively worse, so we needed to get him out…We were able, all of us, to pick the car up and flip it on its side.”
