Nothing Like The Movies - Says Man Who Rescued 2 People From a Burning Car
A Tow Truck Driver in Oregon Was Going About His Business, Saw a Burning Car, Stopped and Saved Two People's Lives - Becoming a Real Life Hero
It's a night Gabriel Lascurain will never forget.
He is a shuttle driver for B&R Auto Wrecking in Bend, Oregon\.. and as he was on his usual route along Highway 126 early last Monday morning (6/14/21)…. he spotted a crashed car engulfed in flames over an embankment, he slowed down and noticed a young man and woman trapped inside, screaming for help.
Gabriel said he wasn't sure what was happening at first, but quickly got out of his truck and jumped over the embankment and, using the tools in his tow truck, managed to pull the two occupants from the car, just moments before it exploded.
Gabriel said he believes if he'd arrived at the scene just a couple of minutes earlier, he wouldn't have noticed the flames. And if he was one minute later, the car may have already exploded. The interesting part of the story is… He wasn't even supposed to be there at that time, but. He says… it was meant to be.
