It looks like LSU wide receiver Travin Dural had a pretty heroic experience before the Tigers’ training camp started. It was reported that Dural along with his cousin, Southern wide receiver Randall Menard, helped rescue a woman from an overturned SUV a few weeks ago.
According to The Advocate, Dural was leaving his Beaux Bridge home on July 30 when passed a car that was flipped over. The SUV was trapped in a waterless ditch six feet deep and both doors were jammed shut.
Dural and Menard pried open the back passenger door and pulled her out of the car. The woman wasn’t injured and she was thankful for the two men who helped get her out of the car.
“It was a good thing we turned around. I’m glad we got a chance to help this lady out,” Dural said. “There were no cars on the street. I don’t know when the next time somebody was going to come by.”
“It’s something you normally don’t see a young guy his age do,” St. Martin Sheriff deputy Michael McQuade said of Dural. “Normal people would ride by and call. They wouldn’t go above and beyond and stop and check. They actually got the person out of the vehicle.”
How is that for a feel-good story. If Dural and Menard don’t get some recognition by the state of Louisiana for their act of bravery, there is something seriously wrong.
Good job, guys. I’m sure karma will work in your favor in the future.
