Eric Trump is being hailed as a hero after running on foot through New York City rush hour traffic to chase down an ambulance to come to the aid of a woman suffering from a medical episode.

What are the details of the incident?

According a Monday report by the Washington Examiner, the incident took place last Wednesday in New York City.

The report noted that Trump had taken notice of a woman who'd passed out near a train station in the city, and an eyewitness — who wished to remain anonymous — told the outlet that Trump and his security detail rushed to the woman's aid.

The outlet noted that the incident happened outside of the F train stop near 57th Street and 6th Avenue.

Shortly after addressing the woman's medical circumstance, the 41-year-old Trump reportedly ran through rush hour traffic to flag down a passing ambulance, nearly being hit by a bicyclist in the process.

The eyewitness said, "I watched as Eric looked up, spotted an ambulance slowly passing by on 6th, ran into traffic — almost getting hit by a bicyclist — and shouted at the ambulance to get its attention."

"Not sure if the ambulance had been called for or if Eric managed to hail one out of the blue, but in any case his sense of urgency was clear and he succeeded in getting the paramedics to stop and tend to the woman," the eyewitness said.

The Examiner noted that the tipster "has no ties to Trump."

What else?

The eyewitness added that most people didn't even seem to notice what was happening.

"I don’t know if anyone really noticed all of this going on, there wasn’t a crowd of people watching," the witness said.

The Examiner reached President Donald Trump's son for comment, who said, "I’m glad we were able to play a small role in getting help for the woman on 58th Street. We just happened to be in the right place at the right time. I’m especially grateful to the EMTs who took over. It was certainly my first time hailing an ambulance in New York City."
