    FDNY priest's ferry lives up to name

    FDNY priest's ferry lives up to name


    An East River commuter ferry named after the Rev. Mychal Judge, the beloved FDNY chaplain who died in the World Trade Center attacks, helped put out a car fire on the FDR Drive yesterday.

    Mike Pasalau, captain of the NY Waterways ferry, quickly changed course when he spotted a fire engine stuck in traffic far from the blazing car near 34th St.

    "I think Father Mike would have been proud," Pasalau said.

    Pasalau radioed another NY Waterway ferry, The Enduring Freedom, to meet him at the seawall next to the burning car.

    Capt. Francisco Esperon of The Enduring Freedom and Pasalau coupled two fire hoses together and passed the nozzle to firefighters, who had left their truck in the traffic and ran to the blaze.

    "Then we pumped water for the hoses," Pasalau said.

    Fire Department officials said no one was injured in the 1:40 p.m. fire in the northbound lanes of the FDR Drive. The blaze was out by 2:30 p.m.
