Most of you probably either read about or watched video footage from a couple of weeks ago that showed a group of Good Samaritans rescuing a truck driver from floodwaters in Texas.
The rescuers, who consisted mostly of fellow truck drivers, included OOIDA Member Daniel Sieczkarski. The video from The Weather Channel shows Sieczkarski entering the floodwaters and dragging veteran truck driver Ronald Bumpus, who can’t swim, back to shore safely as the others pulled.
The video footage and talk of the rescue on April 18 in Brookshire, Texas, went viral on social media and received attention on several national news shows.
Bumpus, who runs a small trucking company with his son out of Murfreesboro, Tenn., avoided major injury and expressed appreciation to Sieczkarski and the others who came to his aid.
By all accounts, it was a job well done.
However, Sieczkarski isn’t finished lending a helping hand to his fellow trucker in need.
