Thomas Prado’s heroism has us considering to what extent we’re willing to risk our own lives to help someone else.
Prado, of Lubbock, Texas, was driving down a west Texas highway the other day when he saw a 94-year-old woman on the other side of the highway driving the wrong way.
What would you choose: keep in driving, call 9-1-1 and let it be someone else’s problem, or turn around to chase her down and get on the wrong side of the highway too?
Guess what Prado did? (Note: lots of obscenities in these)
He caught up to her. But she wouldn’t stop.
There was only one other thing to do. Drive the wrong way, too.
Here’s what a rootin’ tootin’ American hero looks like.
When he asked if he could call a family member to help her, she told him, “I have a cat.”
“I’m no hero,” he wrote. “But I saw the right thing to do and so can you!”
