Face of the day

DAVID UNWIN/STUFF Bonnie Matehaere pulled a woman out of a burning car, saving her life.


[…] When she was rescuing the driver, Matehaere was worried the car would “explode like a scene in the movies”, but she didn’t let that fear stop her from saving the woman.

“I think?anyone in my position would do the same thing,” she said.

Matehaere was disappointed the two cars she saw pass the scene had not stopped to help, or to?check the burning car was occupied.

“If that was my grandmother or mother or aunt?I would hope someone would help them,” she said.
