According to a report from Fox News, a group of Good Samaritans called the “Collier County Cowboys” saved an elderly man trapped in a car just before it was submerged by floodwaters from Hurricane Ian.
Lemi Gavra and Benny Cociuba stopped by Fox & Friends to recount the harrowing tale to host Pete Hegseth on Friday; “he maybe had a few minutes,” the cowboys said.
“He maybe had a few minutes. He was an older gentleman. He couldn’t push the door open. It took us about 10 minutes, and we were able to get to him before it was too late,” said Gavra.
Garva and Cociuba were out patrolling during the storm.
“We noticed that no one was out there covering it. So we went all the way to the beach and we noticed that the surge and hurricane was picking up quite a bit.”
That’s where they found the elderly man trapped in his vehicle.
“We started to make our way back. And that’s when we saw this gentleman in distress,” Gavra said. “So, everyone’s got a guardian angel. I think we were that for him.”
