Good Samaritans Rescue Victim of Truck Crash

On Monday morning, a truck flipped over during a terrible crash on a busy freeway in Chicago. One man inside was able to climb out, but the other was trapped.

Almost immediately, other drivers stopped and rushed to his aid. Together, these men flipped the pickup truck over and pulled the crash victim, Orlando Hernandez, to safety. ABC News reports:

Tom Meyers was leaving his full-time job as a firefighter in Rosemont, Illinois, for his part-time firefighting job in Aurora Township when he drove past the scene.
"Anytime you see something like that happen, you always … have that urge to help," he told WLS. [...]
Meyers and others used the construction workers' tools to break the windshield and cut Hernandez's seat belt, WLS reported.
The group cheered once they realized Hernandez wasn't seriously injured.
