Marine rushes to local teen’s aid after terrible car accident

Cpl. Joshua Murphy, an airframe mechanic with Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 252, stands in front of one of the squadron’s KC-130J Hercules on the Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point flight line Oct. 29. Murphy, a native of Colton, Calif., recently rushed to the aid of a 19-year-old woman who was in a car accident near his home in Newport, N.C. Murphy applied pressure to a wound on the young woman’s head until paramedics arrived. She was airlifted to Vident Memorial Hospital in Greenville, N.C., where she was treated for non-life threatening injuries. “That’s who we’re supposed to be as a Marine,” said Murphy. “We’re there to help and to protect.”
