Airborne SUV Crash River Rescue Trapped Teens Saved By Strangers Salt Lake City Heroes . Heroic River Rescue SUV Trapped Teens Saved By Strangers Salt Lake City Rescue. Salt Lake City saw true heroism Thursday night when a group of courageous bystanders rushed heedlessly waist deep into a river to save three teenage boys trapped in an overturned SUV.

Police said the vehicle went airborne and landed in the water after crashing through a barrier while going too fast on Indiana Avenue at approximately 6:30 p.m.

Eyewitness Leo Montoya Jr. says he was the first into the water. The driver was taken to the hospital in serious condition and the other boys, condition unknown, were also sent for medical treatment.

One of the men who helped to flip the vehicle said the group tried to cut apart the driver's seat belt before resorting to turning the vehicle over but that those attempts were unsuccessful.
'Everybody was yelling to jump in the water, and it just started snowballing,' Ron Darro said. 'More and more people were in the water.'

Faced with the footage after the fact, Montoya looked as if he was about to cry.

'As far as I know, a couple of kids get to live because of my actions,' Montoya told NBC 12, the glimmer of a grin breaking. 'I feel like I'm somebody.'
