Father Andrew Greeley is in critical but stable condition after a fall from a cab last Friday.Two Good Samaritans saw Father Greeley, whose jacket got caught in a taxicab door at the Rosemont El station, fall last Friday. They ran over to help the 80-year-old priest.

"As he was kind of walking away, the cab driver just started driving, not knowing his jacket was caught. He just was pulled to the ground really forcefully" said Lawrence Williamson. "He was definitely going into shock. I think the comfort of me being there, and my girlfriend, helping him, letting him know that the medical team was on the way, I think that was definitely helping him out."

Williamson and his girlfriend, Renee Tucknott, were visiting from Los Angeles. Williamson is training to be an emergency medical technician.
