If not for some extraordinary efforts by some ordinary folks, two women probably would not be alive today.
Last week Giovanna Demonte of Picayune was driving on Interstate 10 when the car ran off the road and crashed into a tree. Her disabled sister was in the car too. The impact of the crash had them trapped in a burning car.
Some 15 to 20 motorists came to the sisters aid. As the fire spread, those who stopped, used fire extinguishers trying to knock down the flames. Then, David Summer a concrete truck driver, realized he had more than a hundred gallons of water in his truck. That water kept the blaze in check while others used a crow bar to free the women.
The rescue was captured in these dramatic photos taken by Associated Press photographer Gerald Herbert. Herbert only started taking these pictures after he helped in the rescue.
We don't know the names of all of the people who stopped to help, but we know each one of them made someone else their top priority that day.
It's good to know that we live in an area where folks are willing to put their lives on the line to save a stranger. We salute these heroes and the example they set for us all.
