Citizen Heroes Rescue Biker from Burning Vehicle

Police are searching for a group of Utah citizens due to their involvement in a Utah motorcycle crash. However, these people are not guilty of any crime. Instead, police want to offer gratitude to these people for saving the biker’s life. Construction workers, a businessman and two casually dressed civilians came together to lift a burning car off Brandon Wright, a motorcyclist involved in a collision in Salt Lake City.

According to KARE 11, a black BMW pulled out of a parking lot near the Utah State University Campus in front of the motorcyclist, so Wright grounded his bike to avoid being hit. Instead, his motorcycle burst into flames and he slid underneath the car, which also caught on fire. Emergency medical personnel airlifted Wright to Intermountain Medical Center, where he is stable but in critical condition. The driver of the BMW was not seriously injured.

The good deeds of the unprofessional rescue crew became instant national news, and Matt Lauer from the Today show stated, “We use the word hero too often; not in this particular case.” Indeed, the group of people who banded together to save this victim of a motorcycle accident are truly deserving of a pat on the back.
