On Tuesday during the mist of a flood when Missouri residents were getting stranded, one pregnant resident found herseld rescued by a true NFL legend.
The Kansas City Chiefs’ star Neil Smith said, “I was just in the right place at the right time,” when he spoke to the news about rescuing a stranded motorist who turned out to be very pregnant.
The flood waters was along the roadways to Voy Spears Elementary school where the parents were making their way onto the school property to drop their children off.
“When I came out there this lady, she was driving and I couldn’t believe she was in there and she just got to the point where the car stalled,” said Neil Smith.
When Smith noticed the car was stalled, Smith jumped into to survivor mode and helped her out of her car.
“She was in there, I didn’t know if she had kids, because she about nine months pregnant and she was very short, so I had to walk her out of there,” Smith said.
During his career Smith played as a defensive end for the Chiefs from 1988-1996. Smith also played with the Denver Broncos and the San Francisco Chargers and was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in as a Chiefs in 2006.
The news said that the stranded woman declined to comment so they don’t know if she knows her rescued was a legend.
