As the car drifts across the intersection all the way to the other side, more drivers get out of their car to step up and try to rescue the situation, including one in US army fatigues who ran all the way across the notoriously busy junction. 

The combined strength of six people brings the car to a halt and a woman hands a dumbbell she fetched from her car to a man who uses it to break one of the rear windows.

Once they have access to the car, the team of heroes wheel it to the parking lot of a nearby 7-Eleven, where they where a nurse provides Laurie with medical attention until the fire department arrives.

Laurie expressed the gratitude that her daughters had towards the team of good Samaritans and said she would like to return the dumbbell which was still in her car to its owner. 

Her medical emergency was attributed to a combination of high blood pressure pills and fasting ahead of a medical procedure which caused her to get dizzy.

As Laurie tried to pull over she started to convulse. ‘When I started to pull over is when I went out and started to convulse. I didn’t wake up till the next day,’ she said.

Laurie Rabyor originally hails from Naugatuck, Connecticut, according to Facebook. She is a mother to two daughters and a grandmother to boys.

Boynton Beach police hope to honor the good Samaritans and are seeking their identities.

Eventually they intend to organize a gathering in which they can all meet Laurie, fully-recovered and in high spirits, and share an emotional reunion.
