In a southwest area in Colorado Springs, a woman crashed her car into a pond on Saturday afternoon. She missed the curve and drove straight in after crashing into two utility boxes, and a 6-foot tall fence. She even knocked down a pine tree too.
She was shaken up, but at the right time a witness stepped in, put his life at risk, pulled her out and saved her from drowning.
Lt. Kevin Ducy with the local Fire Department said it was a phenomenal act. “That’s the way it should be, I believe, people helping people when they need it. Obviously, he put her life ahead of his. It’s probably on a 4 or 5-foot [deep] pond, but you don’t necessarily know that.”
He also said, “That’s the way it should be, I believe, people helping people when they need it. Obviously, he put her life ahead of his. It’s probably on a 4 or 5-foot deep pond, but you don’t necessarily know that from looking at it.”
Because of this hero who happened to be at the right place at the right time, the lady is expected to be okay and didn’t have any serious injuries as a result of the crash.
She was taken to the hospital just in case, but we’re thankful she is okay and that no one else was involved in the crash or injured along the way.
Also, local rescue personnel removed her car from the pond with a tow truck after they made sure the woman was okay.
The rescuer left the scene of the crash before anyone was able to ask what his name was, so they are hoping this mystery man will come forward so the woman and fire department can thank him for his selfless act.
