Resourceful drivers save a life in Prince George's

Prince George's Fire and Emergency Services are giving kudos to two good Samaritans who helped save a woman from a burning car Thursday evening.

After a collision near Wilson Bridge Drive and Indian Head Highway, the woman's car veered off the road and flames spread across the bottom of her vehicle. A FedEx driver, David Ramadhani of Bowie, ran to her rescue, using a fire extinguisher from his delivery truck to clear flames from her door. As the blaze continued, he and Michael Harry of Oxon Hill reached in the car, cut her seat belt using a utility knife and dragged her to safety.

Units responding to the scene said the fire would have killed the woman before they could get to the car if she had not been removed.

Someone should forward this to Mr. Ramadhani's bosses at FedEx. Kudos to both men!
