In similar news, YEN.com.gh recently reported about a waitress from Georgia, US, who was being celebrated for her courageous act that led to saving a woman's life from a burning car.
Keelyn Harper, an employee at Roosters Drive-In, was heading home on Thursday, 17, at about 9.30pm when she saw something burning on the roadside.
According to Fox News, the young lady got out to go and see what was happening when she realised it was a car on fire. Then, getting closer, she could spot someone inside.
Instead of calling 911, Harper knew she had to act and immediately started figuring how she could help as the front of the car was engulfed in flames.
She immediately punched the airbags, which had been triggered in the car, and that's when she clearly saw Ashley Strawn inside.
The young mother, who alluded her reactions to motherly instincts, went on the passenger side and grabbed Ashley, whose legs were still trapped underneath.
She was able to pull her out and stay with her as she called for help. Police later arrived and took the lady to the hospital.
