An 85 Year Old Man Rescued Two Women From Their Burning Car

Although Lindell Marbut uses a cane and is slow to get around, when he saw the out-of-control car flip over in his front yard he decided to ignore the flames and rush to help while his caretaker rushed to call 911.

“When I got back over here this way, he was beating on the front windshield with a cane,” said Sondra Young, Marbut’s caretaker.

Marbut succeeded in getting the driver pulled out and in to safety in the garage, then with the help of his caretaker went back and got the passenger to safety as well. By the time firefighters arrived, both women were safely out of the burning car.

Officials say speed was a factor in the crash and both women have serious internal injuries, but are expected to survive thanks to Marbut. So it's true what they say, age is just a number.
