According to police, as the woman’s car slowly entered an intersection her coworker, who was in another car and saw it happening, raced across the street waving her arms to get people’s attention.
People got out of their cars and worked together to prevent the vehicle from moving further, police said.
A woman nearby grabbed a dumbbell from her car for a man to use to smash the rear passenger window to unlock the car, according to the police’s Facebook post.
The team of Good Samaritans were able to push the car to a nearby 7-Eleven parking lot where a nurse provided medical attention while on the phone with 911 waiting on the fire department to arrive, police said.
Boynton Beach police said they are hoping they can find the identities of the strangers by sharing this video so they can be honored and meet the woman they rescued.
