Daryn Sturch, an Indiana nurse who was traveling on State Road 19 near Denver in September 2018 when she noticed an accident involving several motorcycles.
It was one of those car accidents that affected a large number of people. The majority of the bikers were members of the Milwaukee Iron motorcycle club. If the nurse had not been present, they might have died, per Good Morning America.
“When I pulled up, it looked like one of them had lost control and their bikes [got] tangled,” Sturch of Denver, Indiana, told GMA. “I parked a ways away so my daughter wouldn’t see and I ran up. They had some severe injuries.”
She told her daughter to stay in the car and then got out, running over to do all she could to save them—like a superhero. Despite several of them suffering from serious injuries, she was able to save all of the bikers.
“I’m a nurse and saw several motorcycles were involved,” Sturch told WRTV. “I told my daughter I need to help and ran up to assist.”
Until paramedics arrived, Sturch said she consoled the victims, who included three males and two women. The bikers later recovered and contacted Sturch via Facebook.
“I just got a flood of messages from them, thanking me,” Sturch recalled.
Sturch said she and Milwaukee Iron kept in touch, and on Sept. 7, she shared a photo of her daughter Bryanne selling lemonade outside their home. They knew where her place was.
On one Saturday morning, Sturch was selling lemonades with her little daughter when they heard the sound of motorcycles.
The nurse watched how the people she had helped parked in front of them a few seconds later. It was not just the accident victims, but the entire Milwaukee Iron club as well.
“I had no idea how many there would be and they were so generous,” Sturch said. “She was charging $1, and I bet every one of them gave a $5 or $10 or $20. [Bryanne] was as happy as she could be.”
The bikers formed a line to buy lemonade and express their gratitude to Sturch. With a smile on her face, her daughter served each biker. After that, the bikers presented Sturch with Milwaukee Iron T-shirts.
The nurse then shared the entire story on her Facebook page about this incredible experience.
“Thank you Milwaukee Iron for stopping at Bryanne’s lemonade stand and making her day. We love the T-shirt’s. #greatpeople. Spread love and stop negativity. Put yourself in the shoes of others. Not only understand each others individual and cultural differences but RESPECT them. I see a line of men and women with servants hearts,” Sturch wrote.
The reunion was quite emotional, and the hugs were as tight as they could be. The riders were grateful to Sturch for saving their lives, while the nurse and her mother were grateful for their kindness.
“It gives me so much joy for others to see how amazing, kind, loyal and generous these people are. They’ve helped me more than I helped them. They just don’t know it.”
