Body of dead man saves driver from 100-feet fall: Here is what happened

The almost-disaster and escape happened to the driver of a hearse in Colorado, USA. A hearse is a vehicle used to transport the dead, usually to a funeral or a cemetery. It is typically a long, black car with a compartment in the back designed to hold a casket or coffin.

The driver of the hearse was traveling along a winding road in Colorado, carrying the body of an organ donor. However, the journey took a terrifying turn when the driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed through a guardrail.But then it came to  a sudden stop, with the driver’s cabin portion of the hearse dangling precariously over a canyon, with the driver trapped inside. The driver later said that the accident happened because an erratically driven Dodge Durango mid-size SUV sped past, causing the hearse driver to swerve and lose control.

Emergency services were quickly called to the scene, and rescue teams worked tirelessly to free the driver from the vehicle. The situation was made even more challenging by the fact that the hearse was hanging at a steep angle, making it difficult for rescuers to approach safely.

As they worked, they realized that the weight of the donor’s body was actually helping to stabilize the vehicle and prevent it from tipping over the edge. It was a remarkable stroke of luck that may have saved the driver’s life.

After a tense and dramatic rescue operation, the driver was finally freed from the vehicle and taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. The selfless act of the organ donor, who had no idea that their body would help to save a life in this way, had played a crucial role in preventing a tragedy on the road.

A police officer who was part of the rescue team was heard saying that “That’s a lucky mother*****r right there” as he walked towards the dangling car. The fire and rescue team who helped the driver and recovered the hearse said that the vehicle “came to rest teetering over a 100-foot-high embankment.”

The incident has been widely praised as a remarkable example of the life-saving potential of organ donation. Every year, thousands of people in the United States die waiting for a transplant, and the decision to become an organ donor can have a profound impact on the lives of others.

Authorities are still investigating the cause of the accident, but many are already hailing the heroism of the organ donor and the quick actions of the emergency responders who saved the driver’s life. It was later known that after recovering the hearse, the organ donor’s body was used to help eight others waiting for his organs.
