Three Indiana Linemen Flipped Burning Truck to Save Family, Pregnant Woman
Three linemen from the Forest Park, In. football team are being recognized locally for helping to save a family that was involved in a dangerous crash Saturday. Anthony Fischer, Austin Kempf, and Ethan Knust were walking into a local store when they heard a car crash down the road. They ran out of the store, through a deep ditch, and stomped down a barbed wire fence to reach the car. Turns out it was a truck that had overturned and was beginning to burn.
The young men helped pull the driver, Kyle Rummel, out of the truck, and he reached back to rescue his three-year-old daughter. That’s when he told the boys about his pregnant wife, Erica, who was trapped under the truck. The linemen coordinated an effort with two others to flip over the burning truck and help save the endangered woman. All the passengers were freed and walked away with minor injuries. Erica says the young boys helped saved her and her unborn son.
This news report lets you hear the story straight from the three linemen:
This isn’t the first story we’ve heard about lineman lifting vehicles to help save people. Remember this heroic story? That extra strength does more than just protect a quarterback — it can be extremely helpful in emergency situations. Thank goodness these boys were around to save the family. Who knows how bad the situation could have become without them?
