“A group of Good Samaritans sprang into action on May 5 to help a woman who suffered a medical episode while driving in Boyton Beach, Florida. As her car slowly entered the intersection at Congress Avenue, her co-worker raced across the street waving her arms to get the attention of other motorists. Her co-worker was in another car and saw her slumped over the steering wheel. Several people got out of their cars and worked together to stop the moving car. 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.”
“The Boyton Police have identified some of the heroes already and are hoping to ID the others to reward them for their heroic acts,” explains the caption of the video.
