It was a scene out of a watery hell: A vehicle flipped over by a flooded Texas highway, good Samaritans trying desperately to pull two trapped babies out, a blaring horn, the crackle of thunder, the desperate cries of rescuers racing against time.
Jaime Martinez, who was heading to a party with a pal on Saturday when he came across the rescue-in-progress, knew just what to do. Thirty years ago, he had been a firefighter in Guatemala, and he never dreamed he would need to tap that training again.
“It was something that I can’t believe happened,” Martinez, 58 and overcome with emotion, told NBC News on Monday. “People were crying, there was a lot of confusion. The parents were still in the car at the time. Everyone was trying to do as much as they could do.”… read more

2 Samuel 22:7 In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.
