You have heard the saying “not all heroes wear capes”, as it seems some heroes wear at least a waterproof poncho.
A student’s life was saved by a school traffic warden and tried by the Maryland police.
Maryland probationer (Cpl test) and school traffic warden, Annette Goodyear, can be used as a… super woman after rescuing a student from a serious accident just before he was hit by a speeding car.
Goodyear put herself in danger and was hit by the car, which appears to have developed high speed, on a school road. At some point, it also appears to be blocking the car wheels as the driver tries to stop on the seemingly slippery asphalt at the last minute.
«Out of the corner of my eye, I just saw the car approaching the child», Goodyear told the Washington Post, adding: «I had never seen a car approach so fast on the pedestrian crossingν ». Apparently, the driver of the car did not realize how fast he was going.
Fortunately for the child, Goodyear managed to push it, before being hit by the car itself. The driver of the car, who claimed she did not see Goodyear, went out to check it was done.
Miraculously, even though she lay on the ground for several minutes, Goodyear managed to get up on her own. He was taken to hospital for examination, but was immediately released. The driver of the car, meanwhile, was arrested for several traffic offenses including negligence in driving.
