Great-grandmother, Joanna Broussard, was driving on I-20 in Dallas when she blacked out and drove her white SUV into a creek. Ms. Broussard is diabetic, and if she doesn’t eat every two hours, she may black out, and that is exactly what happened on Tuesday, May 10, 2016.
She is now recovering from the terrible crash at the Methodist Dallas Medical Center, but authorities say she could have died if it hadn’t been for the courageous action of a father and his son who rescued her. The vehicle was submerged almost completely by the time Dallas Firefighters and the police arrived on the scene.
When they arrived, they found the 69-year-old woman had been rescued from the creek, but there was no sign of the two men who fearlessly jumped 20 feet into the water to save her.
They left no evidence behind as to who they were so that their heroism would be anonymous; it worked.
NBC 5 held a personal interview with Ms. Broussard in the hospital saying that she may be released as early as Wednesday with no surgery. When asked was asked what she thought of the rescue, she replied that she was extremely thankful and if the two men were watching, she would like to give them a hug and a personal Thank You!
