Congratulating the Stalcup Ohana for Their Exemplary Citizenry and Bravery

6 10 2015

Chair Martin with Stalcup OhanaOn the evening of Sunday, August 30, 2015, the Stalcup Ohana were on their way home from church when they witnessed a terrible accident.

Tim Stalcup, a City employee with the Department of Facility Maintenance and his wife Cherish Stalcup, an employee of the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation and their two teenage children were traveling along the H-2 when Tim noticed a car in his rearview mirror driving at approximately 100 MPH.

Handshake with Tim StalcupAfter passing them, the driver lost control of the vehicle and slammed into a SUV that was ahead of the Stalcups. After impact, the SUV rolled 4 times, hit a light post and rolled once more before landing on its side. The speeding car fled from the scene while Tim pulled his car over to the shoulder and crossed the freeway to help the passengers stuck in the SUV.

Tim used his bare arms to break open the back window which was shattered to assist the three passengers stuck in the car. The passengers included a father and mother with their four-year-old daughter. Tim found the daughter in the backseat and was able to pull her out, handing her over to his wife Cherish who carried the young girl to the shoulder of the road while calling 911.

Stalcup OhanaWhile Cherish’s daughter cared for the child, Cherish returned to the SUV to assist her husband in rescuing the parents. Smelling gasoline, Tim and Cherish worked quickly to pull out the father and mother who were wedged in their seats held by seatbelts and airbags.

The family of three were able to walk away from the traumatic event with only minor injuries due to the heroic efforts of the Stalcups. The Honolulu City and County Council does recognize the Stalcup Ohana for their exemplary citizenry and bravery and extends its sincere appreciation for their heroic acts in providing vital assistance in a critical situation.
