Martin Willis has earned a new nickname among his friends: “superman.” This is a well-deserved nickname after his heroics recently. He was the first officer to arrive on the scene of a car crash and when he got there, he saw that there was a van teetering on the edge of the bridge and the driver was still inside.
Martin knew that with the wind, it was seconds before that car was going over. He grabbed the underside of the car with his bare hands to hold it steady until the fire department could get there. The crazy thing is that he succeeded in holding the van on that bridge while other first responders were racing to the scene and were able to get the driver out.
They said had it not been for Martin, the van would have gone over and potentially killed the person inside.
1st on the scene of this collision on the #A1M this morning and faced with a vehicle balancing over the edge of a bridge with the driver trapped! After holding on to the vehicle to stop it swaying in the wind I can't begin to desribe my relief when @WYFRS arrived on scene! pic.twitter.com/E8ilktlOl7— Motorway Martin (@WYP_PCWILLIS) December 1, 2017
