Man Is Rescued By The Same Good Samaritan Stranger Twice, Eight Years Apart

Christopher Manacci had stopped to help Gerald Gronowski and his 15-year-old son with their flat tire, when a truck came barreling down and hit Manacci’s car, which protected the three from danger.


While recovering from shock, the men realized that Manacci, a nurse practitioner, had come to the aid of Mr. Gronowski once before, when he had been injured in a fishing accident eight years earlier.

The unbelievable coincidence occurred in Auburn Township, Ohio last Saturday.

“I dropped my wife off and decided that I’d bring him a can of Fix-a-Flat for his tire so he could make it to a gas station,” Mr. Manacci said.

“The truck went up on the two left wheels and the right wheels were off the ground when it missed us by a few feet,” Mr. Gronowski told Cleveland.com.

“If the truck had not hit the other car first it would have hit us. We could have been killed. And if it missed us, it could have killed someone else.”

Gronowski was recalling a previous traumatic experience, when the two made the realization.

“I told the story about how I was fishing and I got a triple hook embedded deep into my hand,” Mr Gronowski said.

“I was in a lot of pain and my son asked if anyone was a doctor and this guy paddles up in a kayak. 


“He was a nurse practitioner and he surgically removed the hook from my hand. Chris looked at me and said, ‘That was me.'”

The two men were just happy to be alive and safe.

The driver of the truck was taken to a nearby hospital and later charged with Operating Vehicle while Impaired.
