Millions of people have seen the video of strangers saving the lives of a Texas mom and dad and their two kids. Take note, the video you’re about to see is frightening.
The dad was driving his truck, carrying his wife, his 2-year-old daughter and their baby boy in the back seat. Suddenly, a tornado flipped the vehicle over and rushing waters began to envelope it.
“It was just black. We couldn’t see anything,” said the dad, Phillip. “And I was just trying to find my babies.”
Phillip and his wife, Emily, frantically tried to free their four-month-old son and their daughter from their car seats.
But they had no idea was going on outside the car.
Strangers who noticed the overturned vehicle rushed to the scene and were trying to open the doors and windows.
They eventually got the adults out, but the children were still inside.
“I just told them to get my babies I’ll find a way out,” Emily said.
Finally, they pulled the kids out of the vehicle and started doing CPR right away — one of the men, Jaime Martinez, was a former fire fighter from Guatemala who had CPR training.
“It just kicks in,” Martinez said.
Because of these stranger saviors, the children are in recovery
“I just want to hug those people who helped us,” Emily said.
Phillip and Emily got to thank Martinez in person. And, man, if you’re not a crying person, you might be when you watch this interaction.
Watch the video below:
Fortunately, the two-year-old girl, Addy, is doing much better and is continuing to recover in the hospital.
“You want to say ‘hi’ to everybody?” her dad asks in a recent video.
She, like any shy two-year-old, shakes her head.
“No?” her dad says. “They’ve been praying for you.”
