Solomon Crowe frees driver from overturned car
Newcomer Solomon Crowe has fascinated the NXT Universe with his cryptic hacks, but outside the ring, the mysterious Superstar has revealed himself to be nothing short of a hero.
On Monday, the NXT Superstar tweeted that he had just aided a woman who was involved in a car accident in Orlando, Fla., not far from the WWE Performance Center.
There was a wreck in front of me...Pulled a young lady out of an upside down car today... Mind blown.... Right place, right time!— Solomon Crowe (@WWECrowe) February 24, 2015
Crowe, who had stopped in a nearby store after practice at the Performance Center, heard the crash and rushed to the scene of the accident with another onlooker. Together, they helped remove the driver from an overturned SUV, which reportedly jumped a curb and hit a tree before flipping.
“I didn’t even think,” said Crowe, who has received first aid training previously. “When I saw it, I was wearing sandals, and I just took off in a full sprint toward the car. I knew especially if a car’s upside down like that, it can catch fire very easily, and whoever was in it, we wanted to get them out."
Despite not being able to see into the car, due to the airbags deploying, Crowe and his fellow upstanding citizen pried open the door, freed the driver and waited with her until paramedics and police arrived, at which point Crowe quietly left the scene. Later, a passerby tweeted a photo of the overturned car to Crowe.
Though Crowe’s bravery and quick thinking were lauded on Twitter, NXT’s resident hacker shrugged off the heroics.
“I would hope someone would do the same for me,” he said. “That’s how I think about it.”
