Apparently, a kid had a stroke or seizure while driving his SUV over in Lewiston, Idaho. He ended up rolling through a couple of yards before his rig got tangled up in a chain-link fence - at the edge of a cliff. A guy who happened to be out walking saw the thing unfold and ran over to get the driver out.
Fortunately, there were a few rocks around, so he used one to break out the passenger-side window and dragged the kid out. A local news photographer happened to be driving on the other side of the canyon, saw it happening, and snapped some shots.
Once the kid was out of the car, the guy left - just as cops arrived. The kid was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Police didn't get the name of a pedestrian they think ran to an accident scene Wednesday and pulled the driver from the window of a car that dangled over the lip of Lewiston's Bryden Canyon in Idaho.
The unidentified man may have saved the life of 23-year-old Mathew Sitko, whose 2000 GMC Yukon was heading south at approximately 8 a.m. near the 2900 block of Mayfair Drive when it left the road, drove through a yard and over two terraces before getting snared in a chain-link fence that prevented it from crashing into the canyon.
That's when the unidentified man appeared, pulled Sitko from the car, and left the scene as police arrived.
"He said he had to go, and he left," Lewiston police officer Eric Olson said.
Of course, being that he was photographed, it didn't take long for Lewiston folks to identify the guy who got the kid out.
