New dad shows brav­ery

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

Travis Trent’s day started with him cel­e­brat­ing a new life – and ended with him po­ten­tially sav­ing count­less more.

He’d been at the Good Sa­mar­i­tan Hos­pi­tal in Wash­ing­ton for the birth of his son when he too be­came a Good Sa­mar­i­tan.

Travis was in the car park when he saw smoke com­ing from his dash­board. Rather than aban­don the car, he thought about the dam­age that could be done to the hos­pi­tal and the sur­round­ing ve­hi­cles should his car blow up, so he bravely drove it from the med­i­cal fa­cil­ity and parked it at a safe dis­tance. The car was de­stroyed in the en­su­ing blaze. Com­mended for his brav­ery, Trent was re­warded when a lo­cal car deal­er­ship re­placed his car with a like-for-like model last week.
