OTOPIO MU SE AUTOMOBIL DOK JE SPAŠAVAO LJUDE IZ POŽARA, A ONDA SE JAVILA ”TOYOTA”

Bolničar Alin Pirs (Allyn Pierce) je gotovo i sam nastradao dok je spašavao ljude iz požara u gradu Paradajsu u Kaliforniji. Umjesto da se što prije evakuira, kao i ostatak ljudi u gradu, on se uporno vraćao kroz plamenove kako bi izvukao što više ljudi iz bolnice koju je zahvatio požar. Njegovu priču je prenio novinar “New York Timesa” Džek Nikas (Jack Nicas).

– Imali su tu nesreću da zapnu usred požara. Plamenovi su gorjeli sa svih strana, vidio je kako su se drugi automobili oko njega zapalili i mislio kako je on idući. Čak je i snimio oproštajnu poruku za svoju porodicu – piše on.

Srećom, ubrzo se pojavio buldožer koji je raskrčio put, ali onda se odlučio još jednom vratiti do bolnice. Kad je stigao tamo, njegov je auto bio izgoren sa svih strana, a svjetla su mu se doslovno istopila.

No, Pirs se nije obazirao, već je neumorno radio na tome da što više povrijeđenih ljudi helikopterom otpremi u sigurnost. Zahvaljujući njemu i njegovim kolegama – svi su preživjeli.

Allyn manages the ICU at Paradise’s hospital, Adventist Health, and helped spark the quick evacuation of patients Thursday morning as the  swept in. Then he hopped in his truck with two colleagues and headed for safety.

Like many residents in Paradise, they quickly hit gridlock. But unfortunately for them, they were stuck in the middle of the fire. Flames licked at the side of his truck, and as Allyn watched other cars catch fire, he thought his was next. Here was his view. pic.twitter.com/2fACEWn4tu

Allyn held his coat against the window – a futile guard from the intense heat – and put on Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” to calm himself. He recorded a goodbye message to his family: “Just in case this doesn’t work out, I want you to know I really tried to make it out.”

Suddenly a bulldozer appeared & knocked a burning truck next to him out of the way. There was some room to maneuver. But instead of going forward toward safety, he turned around & drove back into the heart of Paradise. Here’s the aftermath of his Tacoma. (The lights still work.) pic.twitter.com/LLUU1fDfYv

Nakon što se njegova priča počela širiti društvenim mrežama, oglasila se i “Toyota”.

Ponosni smo što si riskirao život i Toyotu Tundru da bi ljude odveo na sigurno. Ne brini se za svoj auto, bit ćemo počašćeni da ti poklonimo novi – poručili su mu oni.
