Today we're celebrating a group of Good Samaritans that saved a woman in Boca Raton after her vehicle drove into a canal on Sunday.
Shawn Turner and his son were driving in the area when the spotted the white car slowly sinking in the canal. The dramatic video of the incident, posted to Turner’s Facebook page, shows Turner reaching into the white vehicle, before yelling back to his son: “She’s out cold!”
Soon after, other bystanders also jump into the water while Turner hops into the car through the passenger-side window. It’s then when the car begins to sink more quickly.
The woman in the vehicle is Molly Pedrone, who told WPTV that she’s suffered from seizures for 13 years, but this one came unexpectedly. "I’m so thankful for Shawn’s help and the help lot the other bystanders. I can’t fathom what it would’ve been like without them."
We spoke with Shawn on the show this morning to get his story of the dramatic rescue, listen to the full interview below. You're our Hero of the Week, Shawn!
