Jason Warnock, a 29-year-old man has been identified as the Good Samaritan who fearlessly yanked a driver to safety before his car could plunge off a cliff, Idaho police said Thursday.
Jason Warnock told police that after he noticed debris in the roadway while driving, he then observed the SUV hanging off the cliff.
Warnock approached the vehicle and attempted to break the passenger-side window with a Leatherman multi-tool, but was unable to crack the glass. He was able to calm Sitko enough, though, to get him to roll the window down so he could pull him out to safety.
As for his abrupt departure from the accident, Warnock told police he was on the clock and needed to get back to work when officers arrived. He admitted he was also trying to avoid attention.
So much for that, as he is receiving national attention for his heroics.
