“As New England Patriots linebacker Darius Fleming took the field in Saturday’s playoff matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, one of the many things that might have crossed his mind was whether the 22 stitches he had received two days earlier would hold.
On Thursday, Fleming had been driving home from practice when he witnessed a three-car collision ahead of him. He pulled over and realized that the driver of one of the cars was in trouble: her car had caught fire, he said, and she was unable to get out of the vehicle.
“She was attempting to kick the window out, but she was a small lady,” Fleming told the Boston Globe. “I didn’t panic, but I was just like, ‘I got to get her out.’ I tried to break [the window] with my elbow, but that didn’t work, so I just started kicking the window. Eventually it broke, pulled her out, made sure she was OK, and I looked at my leg and I noticed it was bleeding pretty bad.””
Nice move. Still a Patriot, but even the Pats can have a few good guys on the team. 😉
