Brett and Sherri Deutsch are using their Instagram account to highlight and celebrate the essential workers who are keeping the country running in the midst of the coronavirus. Today, they profile Fred, an elevator repairman in New York City.

“Fred is an elevator repairman whose clients include hospitals all over the city such as NY Presbyterian Hospital (@nyphospital), where he braved Covid-19 while working overnight shifts during the height of the pandemic to keep healthcare workers and patients safe as they moved about the facility.

We are grateful for the Essential Heroes, including tradesmen and union men & women like Fred, who tighten the bolts that keep NY together.”
