Good Samaritans Save Children After Tire Blowout

 

In keeping with our attempt to convey a little lighter side to news, we’ll focus today on the heroic efforts of good Samaritans who saved two children from drowning.

The children were riding in a minivan near Disney World when the vehicle suffered a tire blowout. The driver lost control, and the van rolled over and plunged into a retaining pond where it quickly submerged.

Motorists who witnessed the event took a knife and cut the two children, aged 3 and 1 from their seatbelt and car seat, as their mother screamed for help. In the murky water, the rescuers plunged in without a second thought to save the children, and when they couldn’t get the belts unfastened, they felt carefully to avoid cutting the children as they cut them free. The children were taken to the hospital where they remained in critical condition but likely to recover.

Although these children survived the automobile accident, they have probably suffered serious injuries as a result. If you or someone you know has been hurt in a motor vehicle accident, contact PersonalInjury.com today to get in touch with a local lawyer who can help you.
