The family of a 7-year-old boy in Williamsburg is thanking the FDNY for rescuing him.

On May 8, Mendy Gottlieb's arm got stuck in a roll-up gate at 50 Skillman St. while he was playing with his friends. The family says they watched as the boy was suspended in the air for about 15 minutes. The boy didn't break any bones, and his family credits that to the fire crews that rescued him last month.
