On the 28th of November between 6 and 7 pm, we were saved by a young man who had no thought for himself.
Arnie and I were in a horrific accident with our Windstar van. We were nearly home from Merritt. Coming around the corner on 97C, the wild horses were running toward us right down the middle of the road.
Arnie missed the first big mare and then two more were coming at us. We made it by them and then the van started to slide and went for the ditch and slammed us into the hillside. We were nearly upside down.
I was stuck in the seat belt and Arnie in the bottom of the van. The van was smoking and we were scared it would burst into flames.
I managed to get my window open and door unlocked, and I unlocked Arnie’s seat belt. I yelled at him to get out and go for help. He didn’t want to leave me but I kept yelling at him to get out. He finally got out and sat on top of the van when a young man on his way to work at the mine stopped to help.
With no thought for himself, he jumped in and lifted me up with his back and unhooked by seatbelt and pushed me out the window. A second man had stopped. Tim Robertson caught me as I was pushed out the window.
We were taken to our house and Bob phoned the RCMP and ambulance. We were taken to the hospital and checked out by the caring doctors and nurses.
Big thank you to everyone and a stranger with a big heart and no care for himself but to help people who really needed help!
Arnie and Jannette Renz
