In the video below, an elderly man was trapped in his car during the flooding at the McDonald’s on Charles Street in Rockford. In this video, you will see these two incredible men, along with the help of other good Samaritans, saving a strangers life.
Imagine the man trapped in your car is your father or your grandfather. Imagine if Mark Pickett and Ryan Craig weren’t there. I don’t even want to allow my mind to go there.
