"He was a godsend. We don't know what he would have done had they not been there,'' Sgt. Jesse Bell told the Birmingham News. "We're thankful he was there to stop it. We need more community involvement like this."
Stinson was cleared by medics at the scene. She did not get to meet the man who intervened but appreciates that he did.
"I was scared because I thought that was the end of my life,'' Stinson told the Birmingham News. "I tell you what, the Lord gave me strength this morning."
