Woman hit by car trying to save Kittens, wakes up from coma

Rachel was on a busy Cobb County, Georgia road. She said she saw something that made her stop. "I got out to save the kittens," she said. "Somebody was putting them in the middle of the East-West Connector." She reached down to pick up the wayward kitten, and it nailed her.


Lovely story, what a brave woman! I just hope everything works out with her Mortgage.

Thanks BBird for sharing
Certainly, lovely and noble intentions, but i hope she's learned to look for traffic when she's crossing the road.
I hope she makes a full recovery.
Kind regards
