An Icelander who lost control of their car and flipped it into a highway median was rescued by some quick-thinking Singaporean tourists. She is now recovering, and deeply grateful to everyone who helped.
Vísir reports that Auður Gísladóttir was driving on Suðurlandsvegur last Tuesday when she lost control of her car, struck a traffic sign, and subsequently flipped the car three times before coming to rest upside-down.
As can be seen in the video below, a group of Singaporean tourists were the first on the scene. Recording the event, a few of them attempt to free Auður from the car, and her screams can be heard.
Auður says she neither remembers screaming nor the people who tried to free her, but she is now recovering in hospital with relatively minor injuries. She says that if she could remember the names of the “wonderful people” who tried to help her, she would thank them herself, adding her thanks to hospital staff as well for their assistance.
