Hero Driver Sacrifices His Own Car To Save Another Driver Who Is Having A Seizure
November 22, 2021
A motorist in the Netherlands sacrificed his own vehicle to save another motorist who was having a seizure on the highway.
The hero: Henry Temmermans
Henry Temmermans from Nunspeet was driving on the A28 highway near Harderwijk on Friday afternoon when he saw another car driving in the grass on the highway.
He peered into her window and realized she was unconscious.
"I didn't hesitate for a moment. I had to do something," he told Omroep Gelderland.
He sped up to get in front of the woman's car and then slowed down so she would crash into him.
His plan worked. The woman crashed into the back of his car and came to a complete stop.
Behind them was another motorist who managed to record the entire incident on his dashcam.
"We both got out immediately. He called 112 and then we looked in the car together," Temmermans said.
An ambulance arrived 10 minutes later and took the woman to the hospital. She suffered a few broken ribs but will be okay.
Temmermans had to call a two truck as his vehicle was no longer drivable.
"The other driver took me home. That turned out to be an old acquaintance from 25 years ago, when we were both young and wild," he said.
The next day, the daughter and husband of the woman contacted Temmermans.
"They were very grateful to me," he said.
