On Wednesday afternoon, an African American resident of Jersey City by the name of Anayah Bey posted on Twitter some new footage of the Jersey City shooting that took place last week. In the video, Anayah is seen giving shelter to a Chassidsh man who was shot in the abdomen by the gunmen. He ran for his life and had no place to go. Anayah together with other neighbors sheltered him in their building.

Anayah wrote on the post: “This is from the shooting in Jersey City… I’m still not myself. But the Jewish guy I helped is doing good.”

Anayah, who only has 88 followers in total on Twitter, has had more than 134 retweets, close to 1000 likes and hundreds of comments on the video, which has begun to go viral and has been viewed more than 21,000 times.

She said in response to one of the comments that her actions do not make her a hero, because a person needs to help anyone in need and that is what she did.

  1. There is so much good in the world. Thank you YWN for highlighting it. It can be so easy to lose sight of it when we see evil and darkness, like the shooting itself.

  2. We don’t say African American anymore. The proper wording is “black person,” since black people are just as American (and perhaps more so) as you and I.

  3. Why didn’t they call an ambulance right away?

    Was he asking them to call the Ambulance???

    A man is shot and one is busy video recording instead of calling an ambulance?
