Samaritan Knife Use: Boise 13-under football team lifts wrecked car; cuts couple free

youth football team saves couple

An Idaho youth football team used teamwork, and a knife to rescue an elderly couple who were trapped in a rolled-over SUV.

From Good News Network:

Returning to Boise, Idaho from a tournament in California, the victorious Black Knights saw an SUV flip off the road in front of them.

The coach immediately pulled over and the team members, all of whom were 13 years or younger, rushed to rescue the couple who was trapped inside the car.

After they helped the man out of the car, they turned their attention to his wife, who was trapped by her seatbelt. One of the teens used a knife to cut the seatbelt free, and then the boys combined their strength (and harnessed their adrenaline) to lift the SUV off the ground so a coach could help the woman out of the wreckage.

A couple who is trapped in a car is rescued by a travelling troop of Black Knights. Perhaps Chivalry is not dead after all.

    What kind of knife? In how many jurisdictions would this knife be illegal?

    Guys can form teams faster than you can blink. If they’ve worked together for some time, it’s amazing. They know each other, know what the immediate goal requires, figure out individually how best to position oneself, solve the problem.

    Best guess is, none of these dudes turn into urban hipsters.

    God bless the boys.

    Yes, “Chivalry” is still alive and well. There still enough Good kids “out there” to remind us “this too ..shall pass”.

    I think what these young men did is heroic, my hat is off to you all.
    They probably think it was just what had to be done, which is wonderful.
    Remember this day, Men, you should be very proud.
    Churchill said, “Sometimes doing one’s best is not enough. Sometimes one must do what is required.”
    You did what was required to save another human being.

    2A in action: “A well regulated militia..etc”
    What is the Militia if not ordinary Americans ready and capable of acting individually and in concert for the preservation of life and liberty?
