Several National Guard troops helped rescue two people trapped in a car after an accident. The car had caught on fire, but the troops were able to safely pull the people out before they suffered major injuries. The troops were also able to start emergency medical procedures before medical personnel arrived. The troops probably saved those people’s lives, points out a New York Personal Injury Lawyer. The people involved in the accident were taken to the hospital and treated for their injuries.
No other vehicles were involved in the accident. The car was traveling alone on the highway when it flipped over. Two people inside were trapped, but not seriously injured. One of the National Guard troops had a combat lifesaver bag in his vehicle which he used to provide treatment to the car accidentvictims. The troops were on their way to a local air force base when they came upon the vehicle. It is unknown at this time what caused the accident.
