IA State players credited with saving woman'south life

A grouping of former and current IA State football players is being credited with saving a woman'south life after her car plunged into a canal during spring crack on S Padre Island in TX last month.

Former Cyclones linebacker Jack Spreen told The Associated Press that he and some friends were sitting on a balcony at their hotel on March sixteen when they noticed a car go into the nearby canal. Spreen said he, current IA State linebacker Anthony Lazard and Joe Doran, a walk-on who's number longer on the team, sprinted to the water.

The woman, identified by police as Luis Maria Castro, twenty-two, was attempting to kick out the windshield as water filled the passenger side of the vehicle, Spreen said.

The three men tried to crack the driver'south side window without success, but the woman was able to create a hands-sized hole in the windshield. Spreen said he and his friends were able to create that hole huge sufficient to draw the woman out of the car.

"The only thing I can get far from it's just to assistance people when they're in a horrible situation," Spreen said. "There really wasn't much decision making. We just went."

The S Padre Island police dept said in a press release that the witnessing officer, Michael Schiltz, credited the men with saving the woman's life.

"That car totally sank in less than a min and if not for them jumping into the water and pulling the driver out, she'd most certainly have drowned," Schlitz said.

Castro was later charged with driving while intoxicated. The legend was first reported by the Des Moines Register.
