NEW YORK POST – A young woman saved her 5-year-old niece’s life by pushing the child out of the path of a car in Queens on Sunday — but was struck by the vehicle herself and critically injured, witnesses and cops said.

Just seconds after Urabia Nelson and little London stepped off the Far Rockaway curb hand-in-hand, the 21-year-old woman noticed the oncoming white Ford Mustang with black racing stripes tearing through the intersection as it tried to beat a red light, witnesses said.

Nelson pushed the youngster out of harm’s way but ended up being plowed by the sports car in front of the child.

“I saw her grab the kid and push [her] back toward the curb,” said witness Malik Carison, 19, who was riding his bike nearby as the woman and child were crossing the corner of Seagirt Boulevard and Beach 19th Street around 1 p.m.

“This white muscle car smashed right into her,” he said. “I saw her laying on the ground, and there was a puddle of blood. She wasn’t moving at all.”

  1. Attempted MURDER to start with. I do not understand what the Police mean when they say they do not know who had Right of Way??? RUBBISH!!! Pedestrians have RIGHT of Way. Because the: very YOUNG, very OLD, very HEAVILLY PREGNANT, very LAME, very SHORT SIGHTED, very ONE LEGGED, very HARD of HEARING, very DRUNK etc. etc. etc. CANNOT outrun a VEHICLE (unless it's stationary).
