Jason and John Wojdyla were doing air-conditioning work on a building overlooking the train tracks in suburban Lemont. They noticed a car trapped on the tracks, and went over to help the driver, a nun, out of the car.
And not a moment too soon. Within minutes, a train roared down the tracks, decimating the nun's car.
The Wojdylas played down their heroism to the Chicago Breaking News:
"I didn't think we did all that much. It wasn't like we carried her over the shoulder, or anything," Wojdyla said. "She walked out on her own. She wasn't handicapped, or anything like that."
Jason Wojdyla captured the collision on his cell phone's video camera. Keep your eye on the white sedan at the very beginning of the clip.
