Adolfo Molina Burgos disregarded his own safety to ensure the driver made it off the road ok.
This Massachusetts man saw a driver in distress and wasted no time stepping in to save them. Adolfo Molina Burgos was making his way down Interstate 93 with a friend when he noticed something that looked very peculiar to him.
According to the Boston Globe, he was on the way to pick someone up at Logan International Airport in Boston at the time.
There was a blue car that was clearly not being operated by a conscious driver. The vehicle was weaving across lanes in a very dangerous manner and Adolfo’s suspicions were correct. The driver was not awake. “I realized that the woman was unconscious and dizzy, colliding with the wall,” he said, according to Goalcast. As soon as he realized what was going on, he pulled over.
Once he had pulled his truck over, he sprinted across the highway. He did not care about his own well-being, he simply wanted to make sure that this driver was okay.
Adolfo managed to catch up with the car but there was one problem: the passenger side door was locked. Another driver finally intervened and they were able to bring the vehicle to a full stop.
“We started pushing the car towards the railing on the side so it wouldn’t go back on the highway and cause an accident,” Burgos revealed.
The car finally came to a stop and it was not long before the paramedics arrived to take the driver to the hospital. Burgos thought nothing of what he had done and went home to take a nap.
As soon as he woke up, he realized that people had been recording his selfless act. A motorist who happened to be on the same road filmed the moment and uploaded it on TikTok. It was not long before Burgos went viral. A local news station asked him about the decision, as they wanted to know why he would risk his own life to help a stranger.
Burgos was not even thinking along those lines when he did it. In the moment, he said that he felt protected by a higher power. “I think it was something from God because I didn’t even see any of the other cars during that time,” he said, according to the Boston Globe. “I think God really watched over me.”
