People are often good

There’s not much to this story. I share it just as a reminder that every day there are people in need and every day there are people who step forward to help, even if it puts them at risk.

A 27-year-old woman is okay after several Good Samaritans rescued her from a burning car after an accident on the Beltway.

After the crash, the woman was dazed and unable to get out of the Jeep because her foot was stuck underneath one of the pedals and the doors were jammed shut.

Once the Jeep came to a stop, the back of the car erupted into flames.

Brady says several Good Samaritans saw the car catch on fire and ran to rescue the woman. One rescuer tried to knock the fire out with an extinguisher as others jumped onto the hood and tore the cloth top off the Jeep.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  2. I saw one guy with construction stuff on trying to put out the fire and then another guy with construction stuff on along with a man in dress clothes who I saw on a video he got into a blue car pulling the girl out through the roof
