At a busy crossroads in Boynton Beach, Florida, a motorist experienced a medical crisis and lost control of her car. Surveillance footage showed a group of Good Samaritans saving the driver and helping her regain control of her vehicle.
A coworker who was two lanes over spotted the lady slouched over the steering wheel as her vehicle slowly drifted diagonally through the lights. She did not waste any time and dashed across the road while waving her arms to draw the attention of passing vehicles to the critical situation.
A military soldier dressed in camouflage was following closely behind, but his run was cut short by passing vehicles going at a high rate of speed.
The coworker, who was subsequently determined to be named Jannette Rivera, then makes an effort to steer the black sedan away from danger before other drivers start from their cars and approaching the moving automobile.
The group worked together and pressed their bodies against the moving truck in an effort to prevent it from colliding with other cars.
“I can’t thank you enough. I’m at a loss for words to express my gratitude.” Laurie told that if she ever had the chance to meet the people who saved her, she would thank them by saying, “I wish I was a billionaire so I could buy y’all a boat.”
Following the event, the Boynton Beach Police Department uploaded the CCTV footage to its various social media platforms in the hope of locating the individuals who provided assistance and expressing appreciation for their actions.
In addition to that, they gave individuals the email address of the public information officer, so that people could send in any leads they had. Even though Laurie didn’t wake up until the following day, she has since made a full recovery and is back at work.
Juan Chavez, a staff sergeant in the United States Army, was revealed to be the person seen stopping to provide assistance. “When I first approached her, she wasn’t receptive,” he recounted. “After we opened the door for her, she became more attentive to our questions.”
A worker for the United States Postal Service named Davita Peele said that she had just finished her shift and was on her way to Home Depot when she saw a lady racing across an intersection while yelling “help me, help me”
After coming to the conclusion that something very terrible had gone wrong, she exited her vehicle and began directing traffic.
“I had no idea what was going on, but when I saw that lady bending over [the wheel], something snapped in my head. It is possible for it to occur to anybody at any moment. It’s important that we look out for one another,” she said.
