Awww, this baby right here…

Little Nathaniel Dancy, Jr. just stole my heart. The five year old helped to save his father’s life by using his alphabets.  It’s good to report something positive about my hometown. Very, very  proud of this adorable Brick City baby. Reminds me of my nephew, Kal-El.

Of course prayers sent up for the speedy recovery of Nathaniel’s dad.


Newark boy, 5, helps save father’s life using his A-B-Cs

HILLSIDE — A kindergartener helped save his father’s life after the man suffered a stroke and an aneurysm while driving along Route 22, according to a report on

Nathaniel Dancy Jr. called his grandmother after his father managed to successfully navigate the vehicle off the busy highway last week and into the parking lot of Furniture 22 in Hillside.

The 5-year-old spelled out “F-U-R-N-I-T-U-R-E”  to his grandmother when she asked him to describe where they were. He also told her the store’s sign had a 22 on it and that they had just driven through a “tunnel,” which was apparently the underpass where 22 and the Parkway cross.
