    pitch in phrasal verb

    Dear teachers,

    I tried to use pitch in in a sentence that I have stumbled across and would like to know if they are correct.


    > I want to thank my friends who were pitched in in transferring all of my stuff when I moved in to another flat last week. It wouldn't have been done easily without your help.

    > I remember when there was a vehicular accident when a bus toppled over, even the staff of other departments in the hospital were all pitched in to help in the Emergency Room.

    Thanks a lot

    The verb is "to pitch in", not "to be pitched in."
