This week a man in Atlanta is making headlines for his incredible act of bravery and skill when he took command of an out of control situation. The act of heroism was shocking not only to bystanders but to police and officials as well; Michael Perry heroically jumped into a moving Jeep in order to take control from the driver that had blacked out. In the process Perry risked his life to save a stranger and it paid off in the end.
The Jeep’s driver, Christopher Sanders, apparently blacked out after having a random seizure while driving home from work. Fortunately Perry was nearby and was quick enough to park his car and catch up to the moving vehicle in order to apply the brake and save the man from imminent danger.
Those who first reported to the scene say it was an absolute miracle that Perry was able to dive into the moving vehicle and stop it before it made impact with a guardrail. Perry was slightly injured in the heroic move but he says it was absolutely worth it to potentially save another man’s life. In the end Perry says he is glad he took the risk he did as Sanders was definitely very appreciative of his efforts. Sanders is undergoing further medical evaluation but doctors say he will be fine as he suffered no actual injuries from the entire incident; no word on what caused the seizures either at this point.
