DeWitt Teens Pull Florida Couple from Burning Car

By  | 

A couple of DeWitt teenagers are being called heroes after a daring rescue in Florida.

Cody Decker and Luke Vaughn are on spring break in Palm Coast, just north of Daytona Beach. Their quick thinking saved the lives of a couple on Tuesday.

It was about 1AM when Decker and Vaughn saw a Jaguar car roll over , hit two trees and catch fire. They immediately jumped into action. According to The Daytona Beach News Journal, the pair broke the windows of the car and were able to bend a door frame to pull the couple to safety.

The fire chief says if it weren't for Decker and Vaughn the couple wouldn't be alive today. They will be honored at a special ceremony on Thursday.
