While on set for his upcoming movie, Deep Movie, country singer Ira Dean became a real-life hero.
Dean and members of his film crew saw a car flying through the nearby woods. The car eventually crashed on the side of the road. Dean didn’t even have time to think before he rushed off to help.
“We heard the crash and I immediately took off running towards the car. I found it upside down and mangled with no driver in sight,” he explains. “I heard screams from a woman and found her bloody and panicked. She was crying, ‘Get him out’. Fellow actor Eric Hamilton and I quickly rushed to open the car doors, but they were both jammed. I finally climbed through the back to reach him.”
It wasn’t just Dean that saved the day, multiple crew members had to help pull the unresponsive man from the mangled car.
“It took four of us from the movie crew to get him to safety. Then the woman suddenly lost consciousness. We were scared we might lose her before help could arrive. Thankfully, first responders and police officers showed up quickly and got them the medical attention they needed.”
Both passengers in the car survived and were transported to a nearby hospital. While still visibly shaken, Dean posted a video update to his fans on social media. He shared the news and noted that they survived because, “Somebody upstairs has got bigger plans for them.”
