What one young man is calling “The scariest moment of my life,” we’re calling an act of true heroism. A young Purdue student was driving behind his friend along Newcastle Road when his friend turned a corner and disappeared from sight.
When he came around the corner he got an incredible shock. According to the young man himself, “I came around the corner and saw his car on fire.” Whether he was in shock or not, the student jumped to the aid of his friend. His friend had careened off the road at the sharp corner. He quickly smashed head-first into a tree with enough of an impact to ignite his car into flames.
The inferno soon blazed out of control. There’s no doubt the injured young man would have lost his life that day if it wasn’t for the bravery of his friend. “I jumped down the hill and bent the window pane down and pulled him out of the top.” The young man certainly seems to be downplaying the severity of the situation. Nearby neighbors who saw the accident believed at any moment the car could explode. They saw the car become completely engulfed in flames moments after the driver was pulled to safety by his friend.
Knowing that there are courageous people like the young Purdue student gives us a sense of hope against the horrors of serious auto accidents. He should definitely be commended for his actions, and we should all be so fortunate to act as bravely if we face a similar situation.
