A Lil Positivity…Followed By Some Dirty Doggedness: Men Save Woman From Burning Car Then Sue Her For It

- By Bossip Staff

This is how you turn from a hero to a zero in no time…

Three years ago, a pair of Ohio men saw a Hummer H3 burning at the bottom of an embankment after running off a road. Rushing to the truck, they pulled a woman from the flames. Now they’re suing her for damages from the injuries they suffered saving her life.

The two Ohio men, David Kelley and Mark Kincaid, were honored by state officials for risking their lives in saving Teresa Tanner, 28, whose Hummer H3 ran off the road in March 2009 and caught fire. Since then, Kelly told The Columbus Dispatch, he’s been haunted by the wreck and slowed by burns:

“All I know is that I am not the same man I used to be,” said Kelley, a 39-year-old truck driver and father of five. He says his lungs were so badly damaged from the heavy smoke and fire that day that he now can’t carry a laundry basket up the three flights of stairs in his Marion home.

Well, maybe he should have just let her die in flames instead of doing the good thing. Yeah, that would have been the right thing to do. SMH…just when you think there’s some hope in the world, these clowns go and mess it up. Too bad.
