MO: Mystery man saves trapped hunter

October 3, 2012

From KAIT8.com

DUNKLIN COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - Jeff Gribble was pinned under a 3-wheeler, badly injured, and all but certain he would die until a mystery man appeared--a good Samaritan, or maybe a guardian angel. This local hunter feels he saved his life.
Gribble says he was on his way home from hunting Monday night when his ATV flipped into a ditch, trapping him underneath. It was after 8 p.m., pitch black outside and Gribble was wearing camouflage.
"I should be dead," said Gribble. "Honestly, I thought I was going to die. I thought nobody's gonna find me and this is gonna be it."
"It came to a dead T, and I didn't see it," said Gribble. "I went off in a 6 foot ditch and flipped over and the ATV went straight on top of me."
Gribble was trapped, and the ATV was upside down. His face was pinned at the edge of back rack.
