In this sad case, the adage “no good deed goes unpunished” was true.

When a tornado passed through Queens, N.Y., Thursday a Good Samaritan tried to help a woman when a tree crushed  her car. The woman died and Richard Bermudez, 57, of St. Albans, Queens, suffered a brain aneurysm Friday, apparently from the stress of his efforts to rescue the woman, the New York Post reported Sunday.

Bermudez, who was slated to be married this week, was diagnosed as brain dead Saturday, and was given last rites by a priest.
