Good Samaritans stop moving car after driver falls unconscious, saves his life

The woman fell unconscious while driving through a busy intersection in Florida, USA. A couple of good Samaritans rushed to stop the car and save his life.

A group of people came together to help a woman who lost consciousness while driving through a busy intersection in Florida, USA. Video of the incident was shared by the Boynton Beach Police Department on their social media.

The department also appealed to people to help uncover the identities of the Good Samaritans who helped save the woman’s life.

The clip, which was recorded on May 5, shows a car driving through the busy intersection oblivious to the traffic light. As the vehicle slowly moves forward, a woman, later identified as the driver’s colleague, runs towards the car and tries to stop it.

She can be seen banging on the car as it drives forward. Seeing the efforts of the woman, other motorists also rush to help her. They managed to stop the car by pushing it. A man brings a dumbbell to break the car window. He then climbs inside the vehicle and opens the door.

The Good Samaritans then parked the car and pushed it to a nearby 7-Eleven parking lot. A nurse who was on the phone with 911 helped provide medical care until firefighters arrived on the scene.

The driver was later identified by CBS12 News, as Laurie Rabyor a resident of West Palm Beach. Rabyor told the outlet that she doesn’t remember when she fell unconscious, but it could have been due to taking high blood pressure medication while fasting.

The clip has received more than 82,000 views on YouTube since its posting, with users applauding the benevolent action of strangers. Many worried about what might have happened if these people were not there. Some people have even said that people’s actions violate the bystander effect theory.

The police department then tweeted that the Good Samaritans had been identified and were coordinating their schedules to set up a meeting soon.
