Good Samaritans come in to help woman suffering from medical episode in car

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (Gray News) — A group of Good Samaritans was caught on camera springing into action to help a woman who had a medical episode while driving through an intersection.

The woman was stopped at an intersection in Boynton Beach, Florida, waiting for the light to turn green, when suddenly her car can be seen on the video slowly drifting up the intersection.

According to Boynton Beach PoliceThe woman’s colleague, who was in another car, saw her slumped over the wheel, so she ran across the street, waving her arms to get the attention of the other people.

Seeing what happened, several people got out of their cars and worked together to stop the woman’s moving car. A woman took a dumbbell from her car and a man used it to smash the passenger-side rear window.

Another man then climbed through the window to unlock the passenger door.

The Good Samaritans then put the car in neutral and pushed it to a nearby 7-Eleven parking lot.

A nurse on the phone on 911 provided medical assistance until firefighters arrived.

Police said it shared the video in order to identify the strangers who gathered to save the woman’s life. The department said it wants to recognize them all and meet the woman they rescued.
