From Greek life to Real life, this week we chat with five sorority sisters turned heroes. 

The "Thetas" tell us about making headlines when they plunged into deep waters to save a family stuck in a sinking SUV. 

Forget pledging, these University of Georgia coeds prove that true siblings don't always have to be blood related. Sometimes, it's your experiences and hardships that make you family for life.

Go Bulldogs!!

I am Kate Hudson and my name is Oliver Hudson.
We wanted to do something that highlighted our relationship and
what it's like to be siblings. We are a sibling railvalry.

Speaker 1 (00:21):
No, no, sibling.

Speaker 2 (00:25):
You don't do that with your mouth revely. That's good, Oliver.

Speaker 1 (00:40):
So this is kind of fun for our revel in
it because we heard about this story and we thought
this would be a really fun and really interesting podcast.

Speaker 2 (00:51):
Yeah, I'm not sure. I mean, this is something I
think that I would do if I saw something like
this happening. I think i'd be a hero. I think
you would too. I don't know.

Speaker 1 (01:01):
I'm not going to be funny about this. I actually
think you would.

Speaker 2 (01:09):
I think we all have these ideas like, oh, if
something like that happens, I would jump to it. Yeah
you know what I mean. I would be the one
in there who would be tackling the shooter, or I
would be rescuing the people. Because we have this inflated idea.
I don't know.

Speaker 1 (01:25):
Yeah, run, No, it's your fight or flight response, right,
freeze or freeze?

Speaker 2 (01:31):
Yeah, I think I wouldn't freeze. We can take that
one out of the equation. I wouldn't be. I definitely
just like pull then at must I think I would.
I think I would take like maybe yeah, I don't know.

Speaker 1 (01:51):
I mean, these girls, well we're going to talk about it.
But you know, this is like one of those stories.
It's like one of those heroic stories. So I mean,
I want to get into what.

Speaker 2 (02:05):
That all of that. But then the psychology is sort
of like, well, there's a lot of yeah, and it's like, okay,
who who's the yes? What right are you jumping in?
Am I jumping in?

Speaker 3 (02:17):

Speaker 1 (02:20):
This is five sorority sisters on their way to like

Speaker 1 (02:52):
By way, we've never Actually that's actually an interesting thing too,
like what is to be a sorority sister or fraternity brother?

Speaker 2 (03:02):
Yeah, I went to Boulder and I did not join
a fraternity. Yeah that's not really. I had my other brothers,
you know what I mean.

Speaker 1 (03:11):
Yeah, my friends, our energy feels like it would be maybe.

Speaker 2 (03:15):
I don't know.

Speaker 1 (03:16):

Speaker 2 (03:27):
Hi, Hi, lady, Oh we got five seven.

Speaker 1 (03:34):
It's very nice to meet you. Can you guys just
give me all your name all your names.

Speaker 4 (03:40):
I'm Clark Gens, I'm Jane Prtle, I'm Kaylin Iinouchi, I'm
Alan Orkhart.

Speaker 3 (03:44):
I'm Mollie McCollum.

Speaker 2 (03:46):
And welcome.

Speaker 1 (03:51):
So you are all sorority sisters from which college?

Speaker 3 (03:55):
Yes, the University of Georgia.

Speaker 1 (03:57):
Oh bulldogs. Yes, we're a bulldogs family.

Speaker 2 (04:03):
That's so funny. Well we have bulldogs.

Speaker 1 (04:06):
No, no, writers a huge bulldogs fan, right. His dad's
from Atlanta. Oh yeah, well we are a bulldog family too.
So you you you go to the University of Jordan.
You're all sorority sisters. Are you still in school right now?

Speaker 2 (04:23):
Are you? What year are you? We're all lushmn.

Speaker 1 (04:27):
Oh so what sorority worth data is, Oh, we have
no idea.

Speaker 2 (04:33):
No. I went to Boulder and there was a big
sort of greek system. I didn't I was friends with
a bunch of you know, fraternity, but I never I
never got into it. I never sort of did the
rush thing and did all that. But I knew high fives.
I knew them, and I think that's it. I think,

did you guys all meet in the sorority or did
you know each other before?

Speaker 5 (05:03):
Yeah, we all met from our sorority.

Speaker 2 (05:07):
And did you immediately bond or do you are there
clicks that develop within a sorority? I mean there must be, right,
It's like more so like.

Speaker 5 (05:16):
Friend groups and like clicks than like the sorority those
things together.

Speaker 4 (05:20):
Anyway, the sororities are just really big here, Like we
have almost one hundred girls in just our pledge.

Speaker 1 (05:24):
Class, so it's it's impossible.

Speaker 4 (05:26):
For everyone to be in one massive group at all times.

Speaker 1 (05:31):
Yeah, wow, that's a lot. Just do you guys all
live together? No, we're still in the dorms. Oh right,
it's your freshmen. But then do sororities like do they
end up living together? Yeah, we have a big sorority house.
And so next year a lot of us are living
in the house. It's not the whole pledge class, but
like a good thing in the house.

Speaker 2 (05:53):
Yeah. Wow, how fun? I mean that is that sounds fun? Yeah?
Of course, it's it's immediate brother or sisterhood. I mean
that's the idea.

Speaker 1 (06:02):
Yeah, and you get to like have that experience to
gather and do like community.

Speaker 2 (06:07):
It's like a little your little Yeah. Yeah, I just
couldn't go through the process of like trying to get in.
There's also pledging. Is that what it is like when
you're first going into the world of it and you
go to the different stories to get initiated.

Speaker 3 (06:22):
I definitely say pledging is more of like a fraternity.

Speaker 2 (06:24):
Thing than I said. Okay, yeah, pretty light.

Speaker 3 (06:29):
Yeah, just have fun, I guess.

Speaker 1 (06:37):
So so let's let's kind of get into the beginning
of this story.

Speaker 2 (06:42):
So you where were you going?

Speaker 5 (06:44):
Was it?

Speaker 1 (06:44):
And it was for the weekend? Explain kind of what
the plan was.

Speaker 5 (06:48):
Yeah, So basically we were going to Savannah for Saint
Patrick's Day, and like we stopped off and a bunch
of different like pit stops on our way there. So
on our way we went to get like use biscuits
like we saw for lunch, and then we went to
Target you get like a bunch of Saint Patrick's Day,
like beads and stuff, and Molly really wanted grapes, and

then we had to go get gas. So we were
like an hour and a half detour like outside of
the Augusta area when like we saw everything happen.

Speaker 3 (07:16):
We weren't even supposed to be on that route.

Speaker 1 (07:18):
Basically, Clark, what did you see?

Speaker 4 (07:22):
Uh? So, yeah, I was the one driving, and we
just kind of saw this this flash kind of out
of the corner of our eye, like you pretty much
could have missed it if you weren't looking out the
window for one second. And then just a cloud of dust.
So that's when we knew that we that we needed
to pull over and just see what it was, because
I mean, we weren't really sure exactly what we saw,
but we knew it was definitely something out of the ordinary.

Speaker 2 (07:45):
Who was the person who saw it first?

Speaker 4 (07:47):
It was Molly.

Speaker 3 (07:48):
Yeah, it was like the same time, and we were
just having like a two second like back and forth
like did we really just see that?

Speaker 2 (07:55):
Like but you didn't know what it was right or
did you know it was a.

Speaker 3 (08:00):
Kind of a crashing noise too, and I was just like, like,
there is no way what I think I just saw
is what I just saw.

Speaker 6 (08:08):
And then we saw like a splash in the water,
but we were like, oh no, like someone's just like swimming,
like I don't know.

Speaker 3 (08:13):
But then we pulled over.

Speaker 2 (08:14):
Okay, how far away were you from this when you
saw it?

Speaker 3 (08:18):
So it was like a bridge that was like maybe
like two or three stories above the water, and so
we couldn't even really see down to the water at
that point. We just literally just see a slash of
light light basically.

Speaker 2 (08:34):
And then you can drive down to where this happened.
It wasn't so the car careened off the road basically.

Speaker 6 (08:42):
Like if this is the bridge, Like the car went
off like right before the bridge, and we were coming
this way, and then we like turned off and went
down to.

Speaker 2 (08:50):
Like got it.

Speaker 3 (08:52):
It was like a boat launch area.

Speaker 2 (08:54):
Like got it. And then when you got there, what
did you what was the first thing you saw?

Speaker 3 (09:00):
We just look out into this like current and see
a huge suv sinking.

Speaker 6 (09:08):
Yeah, just like a car in the water, Like yeah,
oh my god.

Speaker 1 (09:21):
So so okay, so so give me your initial instincts.
So you so do you park the car? Do you
get out of the car? Like what give us?

Speaker 2 (09:30):
Give us the play by play?

Speaker 6 (09:32):
We parked the car and I called nine on one,
like immediately when we saw we were like slam the
car and brake.

Speaker 3 (09:39):
I get on the phone.

Speaker 6 (09:40):
Everyone else jumps out and starts running towards it.

Speaker 3 (09:43):
Yeah, we just I mean took like a couple of seconds.
We're back and forth, were yelling at her like well
because the mom like eventually like got herself out of
the car, like she like she made her way through
the broken window because it was like on its side,
the car, and we're just yelling at her as we're

tossing our things onto the ground, like our phone and stuff,
and just start jumping in and swimming towards her, and
we're like do you need help? Do you need help?
And she's like she's like yes, yes, Like my two
kids are in the car. My two kids are in
the car.

Speaker 2 (10:16):
Oh my god, So so are you all you all
go in the water. I'm on the shorel on the
phone with my mother.

Speaker 6 (10:23):
One like giving them like a play by play of
what's going on and stuff.

Speaker 2 (10:26):
The other four of you just got in the water.

Speaker 3 (10:29):

Speaker 1 (10:30):
I was it like an initial instinct or was there
a moment of like do I do this?

Speaker 2 (10:35):
Do I do this?

Speaker 3 (10:38):
I mean I just kind of tossed my stuff and
just jumped in. And I think like my friends were
just like, I mean, yeah, this.

Speaker 1 (10:44):
Is what's happening right now, Like we got to do it.

Speaker 5 (10:47):
I feel like we could hear the panic in the
mom's voice and like that helped us like kick into action.

Speaker 4 (10:52):
It wasn't just something you could just watch and I
mean there was there was no one else that could
have helped either. Like it wasn't one of those things
where you could just call for help not do anything.
You had to call for help and then be proactive.

Speaker 2 (11:02):
And how far from the shore or you, I mean,
did you actually have to fully submerge and swim to
the car? It was deep.

Speaker 5 (11:09):
I wasn't expecting it, but like when I first jumped in,
I couldn't stand at all.

Speaker 3 (11:14):

Speaker 2 (11:15):

Speaker 3 (11:16):
Is there been like a bunch of storms in the
weak prior so the water level were like super high?

Speaker 1 (11:21):
M hm. Was it was there a big current or
was it pretty still?

Speaker 3 (11:25):
It wasn't like major, but there was definitely a current present.

Speaker 1 (11:29):
Okay, and so okay, So the cars when now in
the car, is it submerged or is like half submerged
like what's fully.

Speaker 3 (11:35):
Submerged, but just like sinking further and further, like by
the second the door and the door in kind of
the back half of the car.

Speaker 4 (11:43):
The only thing that you can kind of see the
white of the car left, like we could sit on
that part, but everything beneath it was just completely in
the water.

Speaker 2 (11:51):
So Mom was out and then when you realize the
other kids were in the car, give us, give us
the play by play on that. Did you have to
go in and get the older kid? Did the older
kid come out first? How did that work?

Speaker 3 (12:04):
So we all hop up or like one by one
onto the vehicle and where it takes at like at
least two people to be on the passenger door holding
it up because it's like fully water logged, super heavy,
and basically as soon as we open it, we were
also like already like communicating with the older son because

he like his head wasn't underwater yet, and we're just
like keep it out of the water, keep it out
of the water, and you're just like hear him like
crying and like but I mean, obviously we're like happy
that he's like able to like respond to us at all,
and we open up the door and then we like
pull him out pretty pretty fast. But then she lets
us know that there's a whole like another person in

under the car, like fully in the water, and that
was that was terrifying.

Speaker 2 (12:52):
The water was so dark.

Speaker 4 (12:53):
If she hadn't told us, we would have had no
clue that there was another child in the.

Speaker 2 (12:57):
Water that was in a car seat, right, yeah, fully
buckled in.

Speaker 1 (13:02):
So who went who Which one of you decided to
go in to get the kid?

Speaker 3 (13:08):
So it was kind of me and the mom and
we were taking turns because someone had to like keep
the door open or else it would have like squashed
like back onto like all the people standing on the vehicle.
And so there was just both of us taking turns,
like holding our breath like hips up onto the car
and just feeling around like for honestly, we had no

idea what was in there because it's just completely murky
dark water, and like I didn't know if like there
was glass and like, but I was just trying to
obviously locate where the.

Speaker 1 (13:40):
Child was, And did you locate the child or did
the mom.

Speaker 3 (13:45):
The mom was the one who took took the kid out.

Speaker 2 (13:48):
And yeah, wow, going backwards a little before we get
into sort of taking the kid out, and what was
there any point when you guys were in the water
or you're diving in and it's m that you were
fearing for your own situation in your own life, meaning
like shit like, yes, we need to be we need

to save, but at the same time, we need to
make sure that we're going to be okay. Or was
it just pure just go go not necessarily.

Speaker 5 (14:19):
I feel like there wasn't any actual threat to us,
but I think we were all just really fearful that
we weren't going to be able to be successful in
saving all of them.

Speaker 2 (14:27):
M that's crazy. So then baby comes out of the
car unresponsive. Right, how old is the baby?

Speaker 4 (14:38):

Speaker 3 (14:38):

Speaker 2 (14:39):
Four years old? Okay, so give us that the action taken.
Where's the baby? The baby to get taken onto shore
who had the CPR experience.

Speaker 5 (14:49):
Clark had laid him down on the car like the
part that was like kind of barely above water.

Speaker 4 (14:54):
And yeah, once the moment pulled him out, he was
just unresponsive, limb like, his lips were blue, just that
was that was the scariest part, I think for all
of us. And she's kind of shaking him and he
just wasn't responding at all. And so that's when I
was a lifeguard in high school, and so I just
knew at that point that like, he wasn't responding, so
STPR was probably the only choice, and like swimming in

the shore would probably not be the right decision because
he'd probably been under the water for four or five
minutes at that point. So I just laid him on
the side of the car and gave him CPR there.

Speaker 2 (15:27):
And how long did CPR take before it became responsive again?

Speaker 4 (15:31):
Probably a minute or minute and a half.

Speaker 2 (15:32):
Wow, Wow, that's relatively quick.

Speaker 4 (15:36):
No, honestly, I I don't know in the scheme of
those things, I would I mean, it's obviously it felt
like a lot longer than it was, but.

Speaker 2 (15:48):
I don't know. Yeah, oh my gosh, lifeguard train two.

Speaker 3 (15:52):
And they I remember them telling us that, like obviously,
like you need to give your best effort in CPR,
but at the same time, like most people if they're
that far gone for that many minutes, like don't make it.

Speaker 1 (16:06):
Yeah, So he came to and then like what happened
when he came to Is it like that so like
coughe you see it.

Speaker 2 (16:12):
In a movie it cough water or was it? So
there's like.

Speaker 1 (16:17):
We've learned.

Speaker 3 (16:19):
After the process of all this that actually there's like
a reflex within little kids that it's called like the
diver's reflex. And so it's like in date where they
actually just like don't inhale water when they're drowning, so
they can actually like survive sometimes for like thirty minutes
or like not have brain damage or anything interesting really.

Speaker 2 (16:43):
And so when he came to there was no water.
He was just crying and then his color came back
and boom he was kind of there again.

Speaker 4 (16:53):
Yeah, the mom just grabbed him and that was that
was definitely a surreal moment, I think for all of
us at that crying. Yeah, yeah, the kid wasn't the
only one crying.

Speaker 2 (17:01):
At that point, right, And then you guys all get
back to shore in the car. Okay, so now everyone
is safe? What is and had the police arrived you
get fire police at that point or not yet, like
you were taking it. Wow, this is wild, you guys.
Was there a moment of just once it all goes

and that adrenaline wears off, just like what just happened?
What is just you know what I mean? Yeah, that's
when we.

Speaker 5 (17:30):
I don't know if you'll sold the picture of us
standing there, but that was after like the mom and
the children had gone away in the ambulance and we.

Speaker 2 (17:35):
Were kind of like what just happened? Wow?

Speaker 1 (17:40):
I mean I was that you are you still in
contact with the mom?

Speaker 3 (17:44):
Yeah, we had a like reunion like last.

Speaker 2 (17:47):
Week, amazing who wanted who wanted the grapes? Okay, so
essentially because these grapes potentially saved lives.

Speaker 1 (17:58):
That's right, Your desire to get the grapes yeh, of
the process down and then you were there right at
the right time. There's a there's a reason. There's a
reason for everything.

Speaker 3 (18:09):
Yeah. Yeah, I have like a major addiction to grapes.
I've recorded how many grapes I've since February third.

Speaker 2 (18:19):
If you want to take a guess how the bags
of grapes like tire entire bags? Are you a green
or a red green? All the way? Yeah too, So
you're talking about guessing how many bags or how many
individual grapes?

Speaker 1 (18:34):
Yeah, I are like that, like you're doing EXCE February. Okay, thirty,
I'm going to average one three one day.

Speaker 2 (18:44):
I'm going to average one. No, I'm going to average
it's one a day. That's thirty sixty ninety. It's about
one hundred, one hundred and five bags expensive. I will
just go with one hundred bags of grapes.

Speaker 3 (19:00):
Well, I've had like seventy but.

Speaker 2 (19:07):
Oh my gosh. Well I love grapes too. But there's
those ones that are like super crunchy that I love.

Speaker 1 (19:15):
I have them right now. They're in the big the
big green one. Yeah, they're big, and they're like super crisp.

Speaker 3 (19:23):
Oh yeah, I can just like see a grape and
just know exactly it's consistent. Yeah, like from like football
field away.

Speaker 7 (19:32):
Have you ever have you tried frozen grapes? You were
freeze grapes, but then I came back regular. So when
you guys are sitting there and waiting, like did you
have to.

Speaker 1 (19:44):
Sit with the cops and talk to them and like
tell them everything that happened and all of that, or
did you like when all did it feel like a
whirlwind and then when all it was done you just
were just staring at each other like do we go
to keep going for the weekend like.

Speaker 2 (19:57):
They're in college. Of course nothing's going to do heard them.
It's like, you know what, we just fucking we're going
to Savannah. We saved a couple lives, now let's go party.
Is that what happened? I don't know. I think I
would have had to go home. I would be like, guys,

I love you, I'm going home.

Speaker 6 (20:20):
We were like halfway there already, so we were like, oh,
let's just finish it out for.

Speaker 3 (20:26):
One of our best friends is like parents house, and
we were like, yeah, that's going to be like more
RESTful than.

Speaker 2 (20:32):
Yeah, totally yes. Oh my god, the story too, I mean, holy,
all those kids. How old was the older kid? He
was eight? That is so traumatic. So once you got

back on the campus, I know, George is big, right,
I mean you guys should become like celebrities. I don't know.

Speaker 3 (21:05):
I mean we don't get like stopped and like.

Speaker 2 (21:09):
We got bombarded by like.

Speaker 6 (21:10):
A lot of like news stuff, and then like like
the campus like news people reached out and like stuff
like that, but not like students, I mean like our sorority.

Speaker 3 (21:20):
Like definitely, it's like well known the story and like
people will come up to me and be like it's
all a TikTok and I'm like.

Speaker 5 (21:27):
Oh, yeah, that's on TikTok in the bathroom of a
party and be like I saw you one from the.

Speaker 2 (21:34):
Yeah what to say? Yeah? Is there a video of this?
I mean it was there. Everyone's films everything, you know
these days.

Speaker 6 (21:44):
I kept saying like, I'm so surprised, like you guys
actually did something instead of just like sitting there, like
none of us even thought to Like, I.

Speaker 3 (21:52):
Mean we were in the boon dogs, there would have
been no film around.

Speaker 1 (21:58):
I wonder like, so where are you from that? You
were lifeguards from Birmingham, Alabama? You're an Alabama.

Speaker 4 (22:08):
I'm from Georgia. I just lifeguarded at a country club.

Speaker 1 (22:13):
That's so amazing, Like it's almost like every kid should
do something like that, because if you didn't have that experience,
like now, was that something you wanted to do or
was that something your parents said you should just do
a lifeguard?

Speaker 4 (22:28):
Now I wanted to lifeguard. A is a summer job.
But I mean the CPR training is really quick, honestly,
Like it's so easy for everyone to be able to
learn that.

Speaker 2 (22:37):
Did you follow it the way that you're supposed to,
meaning the number of compressions versus a number of breaths
or is it just you just kind of.

Speaker 4 (22:45):
Yeah, I just counted out loud while I did it.

Speaker 2 (22:48):
So what is it again? Tell me? Because I took
it for kids. When you first have kids, you sort
of take a CPR class and yeah, I've got these babies,
and you're doing.

Speaker 4 (22:56):
That for babies. I don't even know if I'm remembering
right at this point. I think it's two fingers. But
then once you're past a certain weight or just just
based off looking, you just put your hands together and
it's thirty compressions and then two breaths.

Speaker 2 (23:10):
And how and how hard were you going? Pretty hard?

Speaker 4 (23:13):
They say, like if you break a rib, Yeah, right.

Speaker 2 (23:17):
You gotta break you gotta break a rip. I hope
I didn't, but I don't know. Wow, honey, you save
someone's life. It's pretty amazing.

Speaker 4 (23:26):
Like we all had to, Like it really was like
it it was all of us needed to be there.

Speaker 1 (23:32):
It wouldn't have yeah, of course, but also just that
that you know, the action of giving CPR and knowing
you how to do it and then act, and then
him being revived just.

Speaker 2 (23:43):
Like do you think it may have changed anything in
you guys. I know that when you're young, you know,
I remember college, I remember being young, and it's just
sort of shit happens and it's incredible in that moment.
Then you just move on, you know, but upon reflection
and when you really think back on what happened, I mean,

do you think that it changed you guys in any way?

Speaker 3 (24:09):
I mean, I feel like all of freshman year is
just like a catalyst of like these relationships that are
just like you're experiencing so many new things together every day,
and then to have something like this like so unique,
so impactful, and then like so like blasted everywhere has

definitely I.

Speaker 6 (24:31):
Feel like it also like the full like weight of
it hasn't like hit us yet.

Speaker 3 (24:34):
Yeah, it's not so hard.

Speaker 2 (24:37):
Like wait a couple of.

Speaker 6 (24:38):
Weeks, the next thing, you know, you're gonna be like
crying about this.

Speaker 3 (24:40):
Thing that happened. And it's just like, I don't know,
I feel.

Speaker 2 (24:43):
There are so many moments freshman.

Speaker 6 (24:44):
Year where like your life is just constantly being like
turned on inside.

Speaker 1 (24:48):
But like right especially so yeah, in twenty years, do
you think that the relationships that you guys are making
right now and that this happened will be very very
present for you.

Speaker 3 (24:58):
No, I definite think it's important to reflect. We always
forget to do that, like you were saying, but I would.
I mean, yeah, I've been there so much.

Speaker 4 (25:08):
At this point together and I don't know, yeh, like
even the car ride up just like all of us
already like laughing and just having so much fun together
and then that happening, I mean, all of it just
kind of solidifies our friendship.

Speaker 2 (25:22):
More and more.

Speaker 3 (25:24):
Yeah, and like also picking up on like how all
like five of us experience like trauma differently and like
how to uplift each other in that.

Speaker 1 (25:38):
Well, that's a really good that's a that's an amazing
thing to say. Like how can you know how has
it affected you? I see if you're comfortable talking about that,
but like have you has it sort of brought anything
up for you? You know, any fears or anything like that?

Speaker 5 (25:59):
I guess, Like, I mean a little bit on the
way back, we were just like, yeah, kind of paranoid
that like something terrible was gonna happen on the drive
back and we were gonna witness like another accident of
some sword.

Speaker 3 (26:09):
Yeah, especially in the like close days following. I just
like that's like one of those situations where you think
about all your life that like is like a fear,
like oh, a sinking car like in water, and then
like actually like having seen it and like just feeling
like I'm like such a small part of this earth

and like that was able to be there in that
moment At that time, I'm thinking, like how many other
like crazy things are going on on the earth that
I'm not there to like be able to help.

Speaker 2 (26:41):
Yeah, timing is interesting. I mean totally if if it
didn't happen the way it happened.

Speaker 4 (26:48):
Yeah, it's definitely so like changed my mindset on everything
really does happen for a reason, Like every little tiny
thing led up to that moment.

Speaker 2 (26:58):
Including the grapes. What a way to start your freshman
year in college. You know, it's all downhill from here.
About like your.

Speaker 2 (27:43):
All, freshman. First of all, I have some idea that
they were maybe a little bit older. No, I mean
first year. Let's talk acause Georgia gobuldogs. Holy shit.

Speaker 1 (27:53):
So I just also think it's so impressive that these
girls just went straight into it. They just saw it
and went into action, versus like, it's not like a
burning vehicle. And I was like, you see a car
that's sinking, Yes, you can swim. Your mother a mom
is screaming like you're gonna we would be out there.

Speaker 2 (28:15):

Speaker 1 (28:16):
But but but they're young, so you're like, wow, they
and I have to say like that, yet an eighteen
nineteen year old girl giving CPR and saving a four
year old child is like yeah, I had to like
really stop myself.

Speaker 2 (28:34):
From starting the.

Speaker 3 (28:36):
Best part, Oh my.

Speaker 1 (28:37):
God, because I could only put myself in that mother's
you the mom just with a lifeless her lifeless child.
You know, when you think about that, you're like, that
is your absolute worst neighbor that every mother has at.

Speaker 2 (28:51):
One point thought about like that, you that God forbid? Right,
And then they continue get which you know, Saint Patty's
Day St Patty's day, Right, But how how did she's
We didn't that's the one thing we did. Now, how

did the cargo off the road? I don't think they
I don't think they knew. I mean, what it sounds
like is they just for whatever reason, lost control and
creamed down the embankment sort of at the trestle of
the bridge, like right before you go over the bridge. Yeah,
oh god, that's so scared. Yeah, I know. Oh, I mean,
what an amazing story for them.

Speaker 1 (29:33):
I mean, the you know, that's I mean, their parents
must be so proud.

Speaker 2 (29:38):
Oh yeah, I would be.

Speaker 1 (29:40):
And and I mean and like right, you know, it's
also it's like proud, but also at the same time, like,
oh god, my daughters are our daughters? Or are you
driving to Savannah for party weekend? And oh god, it's
a lot. It's different when you're with your boys.

Speaker 2 (30:00):
Yeah, the girls.

Speaker 1 (30:01):

college right now, whereas really time being is like, you know,
