Brandy Guin was headed to pick up her kids when a car going the opposite direction crossed the divider and crashed directly her car in Shelby, North Carolina. When she tried to escape the car, she realized there was a bone sticking out of her leg. But lucky for her, Army National Guard Staff Sergeant Cory Hinkle showed up to help.
Hinkle was driving home when he saw the accident and stopped to assist. He pulled her from the car and with the help of another driver, carried Guin across the road as her car burst into flames. He protected and shielded her from the explosion with his body and reassured her through it all that she would be okay.
Now the pair talks every day and Guin says they’ll be friends for life. She’s planning to be in the audience as Hinkle is honored for his bravery and gets the key to the city. He says he was just in the right place at the right time, but she calls him her hero.
“He’s my guardian angel,” Guin says. “He deserves all the praise in the world. He’s just an amazing man.”
