DI­GEST

Daily Trust - - DIGEST -

Here comes the bride...to the res­cue! Sarah Ray, a para­medic from Ten­nessee, went well above the call of duty when she rushed to re­spond to a car crash on her wed­ding day, News Chan­nel 5 re­ports.

Just min­utes af­ter she tied the knot with her hus­band, Paul, on Satur­day last week, Ray re­ceived a call that her grand­par­ents and fa­ther got into a car ac­ci­dent on their way to her re­cep­tion.

So, the bride and groom, both paramedics, sprung into ac­tion.

A photo shows Ray hold­ing up her wed­ding gown in the rain while am­bu­lance lights flash be­hind her.

“My fam­ily comes in from out of town and this hap­pened. I was scared on the way there,” Ray told Chan­nel 5.

Sarah’s mother, Marcy Martin, snapped the photo of her daugh­ter. It has since amassed more than 5,000 shares and 11,000 “likes” on Face­book.

“I love this photo be­cause it shows her char­ac­ter and ac­cen­tu­ates her beauty,” Martin told Chan­nel 5.

How­ever, Ray says the photo made her laugh.

No one was se­ri­ously in­jured, but Ray’s grand­mother was sent to the hos­pi­tal for eval­u­a­tion.

Some are call­ing Ray a hero (she com­mented on the Face­book photo, thank­ing all of her sup­port­ers), but she says she was just do­ing her job.

“Any­body in the EMS field would’ve done the same thing. I don’t know that what I did was spe­cial,” she said.

“I was just mak­ing sure my fam­ily was okay … I just hap­pened to be in a wed­ding dress.”
