Jason Williams - a Good Samaritan in Orange County, Florida

Jason Williams
Michael Bridges, age 61, of Orlando, was driving a dump truck on Florida State Road 429 near Apopka, in Orange County.

He was hauling yard waste. Around 9:00 a.m., one the tires on his rig separated causing Michael to lose control of the vehicle. The truck crossed a grass median, clipped a car and then overturned. The truck then caught on fire.

It is uncertain if Michael was knocked unconscious or whether he was partially trapped in the vehicle, but he did not emerge.

Jason Allen Williams, age 32, of Orange City, saw the accident scene and ran across the highway lanes to reach the burning truck. He

thought that the driver had not survived when suddenly the door opened.

Jason was able to grab onto Michael Bridges and pull him to safety.

Michael Bridges was airlifted to a hospital in Orlando, with serious injuries.

Jason, the Good Samaritan, received several blistering burns to his face.

State Troopers stated that Michael Bridges may not have survived if Jason Williams had not helped him.

Jason Williams is a Good Samaritan.

Good Samaritans are the everyday heroes of the modern era.

God bless Jason Williams and all who step up in times of danger. Amen.
