Good Samaritans Save 87-Year-Old Granny From Sinking Vehicle

Good Samaritans Save 87-Year-Old Granny From Sinking Vehicle

Sometimes, accidents can happen in an instant and you could find yourself in a dangerous situation. That is exactly what happened to 87-year-old Mary Watkins, her son Larry and their pet Chihuahua.


The three were parked near a marina in Long Beach, California when the truck suddenly lurched forward and crashed right through the guardrail. The truck fell right into the water below and quickly started to fill with water. That is when Mike Del Grande, a towboat operator and former lifeguard, jumped right in the water to help save the victims. Along with other good Samaritans, he was able to pull everyone to safety, including the dog. Jeff Jones, who couldn’t believe what was happening right before his eyes, caught all the dramatic footage on camera.

Thankfully, everyone is okay and the hard work of all those who jumped into the water is being commended. Mary Watkins was in good spirits as she spoke about the incident. “The two guys came in the back window and they got in and shoved me up from the behind side.” All joking aside, this woman is very thankful to the kind strangers that day and wanted them to know, ‘I say thank you from the bottom of my heart.’

This situation could’ve had a completely different ending but the quick thinking of these good Samaritans allowed everyone to be safely rescued. There is no doubt in my mind that God put these men in the right place at the right time. Don’t you agree?
