Man who leapt into moving Jeep to save driver undergoing seizure doesn't see himself as a hero
COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) ' A man who jumped into an out-of-control Jeep as it drifted across lanes of a busy parkway in western Georgia says he doesn't consider himself a hero.
Michael Perry told The Associated Press on Thursday that he simply believes he was in the right place at the right time to help after the Jeep's driver suffered a seizure on the Columbus road.
Perry said it took seconds to park his truck and dive into the Jeep Cherokee, which he estimates was traveling around 15 mph when he climbed aboard and took control. He said his legs were hanging outside as he guided the Jeep into the guardrail a week ago.
Now, he said he's looking forward to visiting with the Jeep's driver, Christopher Sanders. Both men are from Alabama.
