The video stopped before the car did, but Molina later said that another man joined him, and together the two did everything they could to stop the car, including using sticks and trying to push it into the guardrail. According to Boston.com, the car eventually came to a stop against a divider. The woman, a 57-year-old from New Hampshire who had suffered a medical emergency, was taken to the hospital. The hero’s wife, Maytee Molina, told Telemundo Nueva Inglaterra he’s always been brave, but she also told WBTS-TV that the rescue was still a shock to her, and she realized she could have been widowed if things had not played out exactly as they had. As for Molina, he said he’d do the same thing again without hesitation. “If it was presented to me 10,000 more times I would still do it,” he said, according to WBTS. “It was something like God protected me in that moment.” Multiple organizations have recognized Molina’s heroics, including the Dominican consulate in Boston and the Lawrence mayor’s office. “Mayor Brian A. DePeña had the pleasure to have Mr. Adolfo D. Molina Burgos in his office along with State Representatives, City Council Members, LPD Chief, Fire Dept. Chief and other Delegations to be recognized for his courageous gesture of having saved the life of a fellow citizen, who a few days ago had passed out while she was driving on the highway,” the Office of the Mayor – Lawrence, MA, shared on Facebook on Tuesday. “Adolfo D. Molina Burgos, who visited the office of Mayor Brian A. DePeña along with his family, all Lawrence residents, said to Mayor DePeña that he’s proud of being able to save the life of the person who was driving, even having to risk his own life. “Mr. Adolfo still does not know what’s the situation of the person who was driving, and he hopes to meet her and share a big hug with her. During this meeting, Mayor DePeña said that he is proud to know Adolfo and his entire family and for knowing that we have good people in the city of Lawrence.” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
