Students Heroes At Crash Scene

Three MTI students who were first on the scene of a deadly head on collision south of Mitchell Wednesday afternoon, talked about their experience as they tried to save the two adults and successfully rescued a child despite fire and few resources available. 18 year old Corey Ramold of O’Neill Nebraska, 20 year old Abby Albin of Emery, and 19 year old Brandon Sandoz of Valentine, Nebraska were heading south, saw the crash, and stopped to help.  Sandoz said there was no time to stop and think….

Ramold agreed…..

The three were unable to save the driver of the mini van 23 year old Sara Claggett of Tripp or the driver of the pickup 82 year old Donald Geidel of Dimock. They did save Lauryn Claggett who was in a child safety seat in the back seat of the Saturn. She was seriously injured and is in a Sioux Falls hospital. Ramold, Sandoz and Albin planned to visit her Thursday evening. Despite the tragedy, the three returned to classes at MTI rather than dwell on the events of Wednesday.
