A group of Rome High School football players rushed to the aid of a motorist involved in a wreck in front of the high school Friday morning.
The wreck involved a small silver sedan that had been damaged after another car pulled in front of it, according to Rome police. When teens noticed the driver was stuck in the vehicle, which began smoking, they rushed to her aid.
“This morning I witnessed something amazing that our Football players did. While I was in front of the school during my morning duty, I heard a loud noise at the intersection that appeared to be a wreck,” Luis Goya, a teacher at Rome City Schools said in a post to his social media page. “While I was running to the intersection, I noticed that two cars were involved. There was a 50-year-old lady trapped in her car and couldn’t get out. Smoke started to come out of the car, and fluid started to spill everywhere in the intersection. The door was jammed and in terrible shape.”
“While I was on the phone with the 911 dispatcher, the football players who witnessed the wreck, ran to the car, and started helping the lady. They literally started using their strength to pry the door open, so the lady could be released,” Goya wrote. “After a few seconds of pulling and pushing the door, the boys ended up opening it and helped her get out of the car. She was shaking and still in panic, but our RHS boys gave her comfort and were able to help her.”
The players were identified as Cesar Parker, Treyvon Adams, Antwiion Carey, Messiah Daniels, Tyson Brown and Alto Moore.

Right place at the right time to have an accident.
These men didn’t know if that car was going to blow up and kill them. They just saw a fellow human in trouble and reacted. That makes it heroic to me.
I guess all the media stereotype about today’s youth are wrong. These guys are action heroes.
