80 year old jumps into canal to save a driver whose car was underwater


Steve Montelongo was driving with his granddaughter in Modesto, California, when she exclaimed: “A car just went into the canal, grandpa!” He pulled over and sure enough, a car was underwater — and the driver was still behind the wheel. Montelongo says about 20 people were gathered around watching, but no one was doing anything. He said to himself, “I guess it’s up to me,” and dove in. Montelongo is 80 years old, and he saved the driver’s life.
