A volunteer firefighter in Massachusetts made a horrifying discovery on Christmas Eve when he realized that the dying woman he was pulling out of a mangled car was his own daughter, authorities said.
Katie Hamilton, 30, of Brookline, was pronounced dead at the scene after her car was rear-ended, sending her into oncoming traffic that struck her vehicle a second time, according to the Brookline Police Department.
Hamilton’s father was one of the firefighters who responded to the scene, according to ABC affiliate,WMUR.
“I know that she is a young mother. She’s, like I said, been in the community for a long time. Her family are impeccable people who are highly respected throughout the town and surrounding communities,” Brookline Police Chief Bill Quigley told WMUR.
