An act of heroism has emerged out of Raider Nation.
While in his car with his wife and neighbor, Taryn Griffin, team assistant athletic trainer Chris Cortez spotted a car that skidded off the road and into an Oakland estuary.
As he conveyed to Raiders.com, Cortez and Griffin (along with a third person) decided to voluntarily plunge in and pull the woman out of the car just in the nick of time. She was taken to safety at a nearby shore.
The incident, which occurred on June 11, was captured by a bystander's cellphone, and can be seen below.
It's nice to see there are still people willing to sacrifice themselves for their fellow men and women. Cortez, who suffered some "very minor" injuries, is being regarded as a hero. It's safe to say he definitely deserves the distinction.
