Pregnant Woman Good Samaritan

January 31, 2011, 5:00 PM by Don Jorgensen

Pregnant Woman Good Samaritan
SIOUX FALLS, SD - With the blowing snow, visibilities are a big problem tonight. But if you look closely enough, you can still see there are a few good samaritans who are helping others in bad situations.

Mondays are bad enough, but this can make a bad day even worse. A young woman with a baby in her car stuck in a snow bank and out of gas.

"A whole bunch of people just drove past and I was probably sitting there for 10 minutes and nobody stopped to help me," Jennifer Schelske said.

Nobody that is, except two good samaritans and a police officer. 

"I saw her stuck in the middle of the intersection and we've all been there," Luke Fortney said.

The other good samaritan will soon be doing another type of pushing, that's because she's five months pregnant. 

"Cars kept driving by almost hitting her, I just wanted to get her out of the street," Jessica Love said.
And that's what they did, pushing her to a nearby gas station. 

"I figured I'm here, nobody else is helping, somebody might as well help," Love said.

Schelske recently moved to South Dakota from Colorado. She says she was a little surprised someone stopped to help, especially a pregnant woman. 

"It says a lot, they are nice, they have a heart," Schelske said.

"It only takes me a couple of minutes saves her a tow truck so," Love said.

A small gesture that left this Colorado woman with a mile high impression.
