"I looked up and saw a car flipped over right in front of the bus, so I ran to try to jump out of the bus."

"I said I was going to help him, and asked the driver if he was going to wait for me and he said, ‘no, I am going to leave you.’"

"A job can come and go, but a life is only one time. The only thing running through my head is that person in the car could pass away and I could help him."
