A group of good Samaritans in Boynton, Florida, jumped out of their vehicles May 5 and rushed to stop a moving car after the driver experienced a “medical episode.”

The woman’s co-worker, who was in another vehicle, realized something was wrong when she saw the driver slumped over the steering wheel.
So, the co-worker bolted across the street to chase the car and flag others down to help.
“Several people got out of their cars and worked together to stop the moving car,” the Boynton Beach Police Department said in a statement. “One woman grabbed a dumbbell from her car, and a man used it to smash the rear passenger’s side window. Another man then climbed through the window to unlock the passenger’s side door.”
The group quickly worked together to try and stop a bad situation from devolving into something much more dangerous.
The group can be seen in the video flocking toward the car and standing in front of it to prevent it from moving forward. Once inside the vehicle, they were able to put it in park and push it to a nearby 7-Eleven parking lot.
Watch the shocking video footage:
The woman in crisis received medical help from there.
Davita Peele, one of the good Samaritans who helped, directed traffic and kept people calm.
“I got out of my car because people started to blow through the light change, and people didn’t see what was going on, so I’m like, ‘OK, just go around, don’t go this way, go that way,'” she told WPBF-TV, expressing her thankfulness over being able to help out. “I helped someone avoid getting into an even worse accident.”
The Boynton Beach Police Department subsequently put a video of the incident on social media to try and find the heroes who helped the woman out.
“We are sharing this video in hopes of learning the identities of all the strangers who came together to save this woman’s life,” authorities said in a statement. “They are heroes, and we want to bring them back together at the police department to recognize them and meet the woman they rescued.”
Police said in an update that they are working to coordinate schedules between the good Samaritans and the woman they saved so the group can reunite. Thankfully, the situation came to a positive conclusion.
