A group of heroic Iowa State football players pulled themselves away from their beer bongs during spring break a couple weeks back and saved a woman from drowning in their car. Then they took this celebratory pic.
“They really are heroes, and I am forever grateful for what they did,” 22-year-old Luisa Maria Castro told The Des Moines Register.
Castro’s near-death experience began when she drove her car into a canal on South Padre Island and began rapidly sinking. One of the players saw her crash from a hotel balcony and marshaled his troops for a rescue mission. The three men above—Anthony Lazard (left), Jack Speen (center) and Joe Doran (right)—jumped into the water and started beating at the windows.
After a few tense moments, Castro herself kicked a small hole through the windshield and the our heroes ripped it wider before pulling her out. As you can see in the picture above, all sustained minor injuries during the rescue, but nothing that kept them making memories with their bros.
Castro’s night, which went from bad to good when the football-playing heroes saved her life, swung back to bad when she was arrested for being super drunk.
