His Quick Thinking Saved A Woman’s Life
A construction worker rescued a woman from the Des Moines River in Iowa after her board overturned at the base of a dam. A member of the construction crew, who just happened to be wearing a harness, realized the woman was in danger and quickly attached himself to a crane. Jason Oglesbee said he noticed the boat drifting down and quickly attached himself to the crane. “They just harnessed me in and dipped me down in the water and I grabbed her,” he said. When asked why he performed the heroic act, he said the harness was already on so he jumped into action. Following the rescue, he immediately went back to work with no further comment.
