Two years ago, Mychal VanAllsburg was the first day he started working at Enterprise Door LLC in Michigan, where a brutal car accident forced him to stop on his way.

Equipped with lessons from the American Boy Scouts, an eagle scout rushed to the VanAllsburg scene and pulled a woman out of her car without drowning in flames.


A few weeks ago, the woman – Jodie Matthews – presented VanAllsburg with the American Boy Scouts Heroism Award to save her life.

I am eshit heard the car crash and just started running towards the noise, ”VanAllsburg told Fox News about the 2018 crash.

As he approached, he remembered a VanAllsburg pickup truck overturning on the side of the road and stopping near the building. Eventually the driver left, he said.

He then described describing him as “beating a four-door car sitting in the middle of the street and scratching his forehead.”

He involuntarily ran towards her.

“When I tried to assess the damage and assess the risk, I ran straight into the car,” he said. “In scouts, they teach you … if you don’t have to move a person, don’t move him.”

North Carolina police officers were arrested as heroes after rescuing women from an overturned, underwater vehicle.

The windows were completely closed, but VanAllsburg remembered hearing Matthews call for help.

“I looked at the engine because it started to smell like smoke and the electric wires were burning … it was coming from the engine. And I was like, ‘Well, we have to catch this lady in this car.’ grass, ”VanAllsburg said.

VanAllsburg stuck his hand between the door frame and the top of the vehicle and began to bend it.

“By that time, my colleague had come running to help me and we had both bent the door frame to get into the vehicle,” he said.

VanAllsburg recalled comforting Matthews by telling him not to leave.

Eventually, VanAllsburg said he picked up the steering wheel and gave them a chance to lift Matthew out of the car.

“After a few seconds, the whole cabin or the cab of the vehicle caught fire,” he said, and so far they were only 10 feet away.

It was a moment, VanAllsburg said, he never spoke after the truth. He said he didn’t think it was his story.

In May, his story was told by many after he was awarded one of three national awards by the Boy Scouts of America, honoring those who have shown heroism and skill in saving or rescuing someone’s life.

VanAllsburg said she struggled with tears when Matthews fastened the award to her uniform during a ceremony on June 5. They had met face to face for the first time since the accident.

VanAllsburg says he still doesn’t feel like he’s done anything out of the ordinary and didn’t expect to get so much attention for it. According to him, how he was brought up.

“You see an opportunity to help someone, even if you don’t know them, you help them, and that was the day,” he said. “For me … I just saw an opportunity to help someone in need, and I didn’t even think twice. I just sat down and helped that lady.”
