I wonder why saving someone who tried to commit suicide is "rescuing" them?
Isn't that an oxymoron?

Getting into a burning car and trying to extract someone without increasing injury is something you only want to do once. The trained deputy and the citizen volunteer deserve the highest praise. You never know when that vehicle will explode, and they do.

The driver, I will assume from his actions, is a MORON.

The word "hero" is much overused in our society today, but these two guys deserve to be called heros. They risked their lives to save another. That is a true hero!

Obviously you didn't read the whole article he wasn't trying to commit suicide "either fell asleep or passed out" get your story straight before you assume things

Jason is an amazing person, and was DEFINATELY NOT in ANY WAY attempting to commit suicide! He made a mistake. That's part of life, people make dumb decisions and mistakes happen. Luckily God was with Jason and chose to keep him with us. God put Mr. Berends where Jason was that night, and he saved his life. Unfortunately his life is put on display for the public to scrutenize and judge him which people seem to be doing so easily. Thank you so much to Mr. Berends and all else who helped Jason that morning. Before you judge maybe put yourself on the other side, the side of those who woke up Sunday morning terrified for his life.

There's always a negative remark from you. Where did you get that "commit suicide" from?

Alcohol and drugs were involved. This young man is very lucky that there were brave people around to help out.

I also hope he sees this as a wake up call.

Jason is not a moron. He is a young kid that made a very bad choice. I'm sure he has learned and is very grateful to be alive.
