A group of Good Samaritans in Florida saved the life of a woman and likely prevented a major accident after a driver suffered a medical episode while behind the wheel.
“After seeing the problem, a driver jumps out of her car and signals for help. That sets off a wave of other good Samaritans who bolt from their vehicles to rush to the rolling car in the middle of the intersection. They try to stop it with their hands. The group teams up to push the car to a parking lot and stays with the ill driver until paramedics arrive. Police in Boynton Beach, south of West Palm Beach, say their heroics saved the sick driver’s life."
The Boynton Police Department says "one woman grabbed a dumbbell from her car and a man used it to smash the rear passenger’s side window. Another man then climbed through the window to unlock the passenger’s side door. The car was then put in park and the Good Samaritans pushed it to a nearby 7-Eleven parking lot where a nurse who was on the phone with 911 provided medical attention until the fire department arrives."
