The Rome Police Department in Georgia said that a group of high school football players quickly ran to a woman’s aid after they witnessed her get into a serious car crash.

The 50-year-old woman crashed at school on Friday morning while Rome High School football players Cesar Parker, Treyvon Adams, Antwiion Carey, Messiah Daniels, Tyson Brown, and Alto Moore were just arriving at the school.

After witnessing the collision, the football players ran over to the vehicle and noticed that smoke was pouring out from under the hood and fluid was pouring out onto the ground in the middle of the intersection.

On top of that, the door to the vehicle was jammed, and the woman couldn’t get out.

“We all knew we had to get her out before something worse would happen,” Adams said, according to FOX News.

Luis Goya, a math teacher at the school called 911 after witnessing the car crash while the athletes rushed over to help the woman free herself.

“They literally started using their strength to pry the door open, so the lady could be released. After a few seconds of pulling and pushing the door, the boys ended up opening it and helped her get out of the car. She was shaking and still in panic, but our RHS boys gave her comfort and were able to help her,” Goya said, according to FOX News. “The Rome High School football players really showed up today. They went above and beyond to help this lady without hesitation.”

Rome Police said the reason for the crash was because a small silver car was hit after another car pulled out in front of it. Policed added that the crash was caught on video by the school’s cameras.

Coach John Reid told Fox, “When I saw the video I was like, oh my gosh, these kids really did run right into danger and have a sensational event where they helped a lady out of a car that could have caught fire.”

The 50-year-old woman was taken to the local hospital where she was treated for her cuts and bruises and also received some x-rays, but is expected to be fine.

“Are they heroes? I bet they are to that woman and her family, to us, we’re just really proud of them,” Coach Reid said.
