A horrible accident could have been a lot worse had good Samaritans not been around to rescue a family from a burning vehicle.
An accident was initially caused when the mother driving the vehicle fell asleep inside the van. The vehicle then lost control and overturned. After it came to a stop in the road, it began to catch fire. Witnesses and residents around the area rushed to the scene of the accident. The mother was pulled out with her young daughter initially, while a 4 year-old son remained in the burning vehicle. This is when the good Samaritans turned into heroes. They were able to pull the young boy out of the vehicle before he was killed from the fire. The family members were taken to the hospital to be treated for their injuries.
