A group of Georgia high school football players are being hailed heroes after their brave, quick-thinking actions saved a woman’s life.

The harrowing situation unfolded outside Rome High School in Georgia on Friday morning, when a woman got into a car accident.
Teammates Alto Moore, Antwion Carey, Tyson Brown, Cesar Parker, and Treyvon Adams had just arrived at school when the crash occurred — and they immediately took action.
“We all knew we had to get her out before something worse would happen,” Adams told WAGA-TV.
The woman, who was pleading for help, was trapped in the car as smoke and fluid came out of the vehicle; the door was smashed shut.
But the players didn’t give up, as they began to tug on the door and bend it to free the victim.
Fortunately, the teammates successfully got the woman out before going to check on people in another vehicle.
The kids’ coach, John Reid, reacted to the video by praising the players, noting they “really did run right into danger” to help the woman out.
He noted the car could have caught fire, but the kids didn’t miss a beat. It was scary, but the teens said they weren’t worried about themselves.
“We weren’t worried about ourselves,” Brown said. “We were worried about the lady.”
It’s heroic actions like these that deserve praise. These young men did the right thing and helped people in need. Bravo!
