A homeless Texan who selflessly helped victims of a car accident said his “instincts” led him to take action. Now, Johnny Walker is being showered with praise and thanksgiving.
His powerful actions came after a Harris County Sheriff’s deputy, who was chasing a robbery suspect on Wednesday night, got into an accident with another vehicle. Then, five other cars were caught up in the chaos.
Tragically, not everyone survived. One woman died and now two children — a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old — and the cop are hospitalized. Three other adults also sought medical care, according to KTRK-TV.
Walker, who was reunited with his family after media coverage of this story, believes he was “at the right place at the right time” and teared up while speaking with a reporter about what unfolded.
“I’m homeless. I was doing some work for someone. I was taking some tools back when I heard ‘boom, boom, boom, boom, boom,’” Walker told the outlet. “I ran out here to see what it is and I saw a lot of cars, but I paid attention to the fire. My instincts were to go to that car and help him out because he was crushed in on both sides.”
