With life being the hectic rat race it can often be, it’s rare that people stop to help one another out in a potentially perilous situation. But that’s exactly what happened yesterday in southern Mississippi when passing motorists saw smoke billowing from a stand of pine trees along the interstate. Fifteen toÂ 20! motorists — one of them who is a photographer for The Associated Press — took note of the situation and ended up rescuing two women trapped inside a wrecked, burning SUV.
And helping the sisters, identified as Giovanna and Felicidad Demonte, definitely wasn’t a walk in the park. Gerald Herbert, the AP photog who was involved, said, “We were all sure [Giovanna] was going to perish.” So scary!
