BOYNTON BEACH, FL – Boca Post (BocaPost.com) — Boynton Beach Police Department wants to meet these individuals who helped a stranger in need when she had a medical episode at a busy intersection.
In the video, you can see several people risk their own lives in the busy intersection during rush hour traffic to help a stranger in need. One woman starts the whole thing by getting out of her car and running alongside the vehicle that is slowly heading into traffic. The unresponsive woman inside the vehicle was not phased by the stranger pounding on her window.
As the vehicle slowly crossed the intersection, other good samaritans observed the situation unfolding and jumped into action. A handful of people actually stopped the vehicle by pushing against it. Someone even used a dumbbell to break open the window to get access to the woman.
According to police, a nurse was nearby and stayed with the victim until first responders arrived.
If you know who these individuals are please contact BBPD so they can be reunited with the woman whose life they saved.
