The deeds of good Samaritans in Atlanta, Georgia, have gone viral after they smashed took to a motorist’s car windows with sledgehammers and strollers to rescue a stricken driver.

“Felt good to see people, strangers rather, regardless of race, sexuality, politics, political views or what not come together to help someone else.” said pastor Qua Tucker, who was involved in the team effort. He told Inside Edition, “It brought joy to my heart to see people who did not even know each other to come together.”

In the video, people are seen pulling over and chasing after the truck, which is rolling slowly along an Atlanta interstate with the driver slumped behind the wheel.

The rescuers first tried to ask the driver to roll down the window, but when that didn’t work, they tried breaking the windows to get into the vehicle.

“I looked over to the right and I saw an older guy driving his car,” Juordin Carter told ABC7. “But he was leaned over. He had passed out.”

To break the truck’s windows and help the unconscious driver, the passersby utilized all means: a sledgehammer, a car jack, and even a baby’s stroller, which led some motorists to fear it was a case of road rage gone awry.

“We took the jack and tried to bust out the front window, but I was out of luck,” recalled Tucker.

Finally, a woman was able to break open the back window glass, prompting Carter’s friend Jelani Campbell to come to the rescue by leaping onto the back of the vehicle and smashing the rear window with a sledgehammer to allow him to unlock the door.

“I immediately got on the truck, started kicking the rest of the windshield down,” Campbell said, adding, “That is when I slid in and unlocked the door.”

ABC7 reported the kind-hearted bystanders stayed with the anonymous man until paramedics arrived.

“I just stayed with him and made sure that he was OK and told him to keep his eyes open,” Carter later called the motorist’s wife to inform her that he was being treated for his injuries.

Paramedics have confirmed that the man had a medical emergency and that he is currently recovering well.
