Quick-Thinking Siblings Rescue Couple And Newborn From Sinking Car And We’re In Awe

Imagine this: You’re driving on the highway, late for work. Suddenly, you see a vehicle swerve lanes and sideswipe another car on the road. The car that was hit was not only forced off the road but overturned into a watery ditch. What do you do? Keep driving and call the police, or pull over to help?

For two Florida siblings, the answer was a no-brainer.

Hit-and-Run Crash Leaves Car Overturned in Pond

Aaron Allen and Jolisa Jones were driving an Ashley Furniture delivery truck on Interstate I-75, two hours late for work, when they witnessed a white Chrysler 300 blindside a Toyota RAV4. The driver of the Chrysler fled the scene. Luckily, without hesitation, the siblings sprang into action.

“I saw that the water was seeping into the car, where it was turned upside down,” Allen told Fox 13 News. “We tried to break the windows, but that didn’t work. So the only thing I could think of was to flip the car over.”

It’s a good thing they did. The quick-thinking actions of the siblings saved the lives of not only a couple — Thomas and Diana Windsor — but also the life of their 11-day-old daughter, Azara.

Man Breaks Car Windshield To Free Trapped Passengers

Allen recalled seeing the overturned car and immediately thinking about his own 14-month-old daughter.

“I looked through the windshield [and saw] the dad was curled up around the baby. Protecting the baby,” he said.

Allen and his sister immediately tried to flip the car over and were able to successfully get it onto its side. Allen then wrapped a T-shirt around his fist to break the windshield, an action that ultimately freed the couple and their baby.

Family and Baby Saved From Near-Death Experience

The Windsors—who were on their way home from a doctor’s appointment at the time of the accident—later said that, while trapped, they felt the car starting to move and knew someone was trying to help.

Surely, it was a traumatizing experience for everyone involved. However, all parties were, fortunately, able to leave the near-death incident with minimal physical injuries (Allen had to get 14 stitches in his arm).

Although the two probably began their day stressed about being so late for work, they can now look back fondly, knowing they ended it as heroes.
