A bride went into “nurse mode” wearing her wedding dress after seeing a car crash on the way home from church.
Rachel Taylor, 22, and her husband Calvin Taylor, 23, had just left church and were headed to their new town home when they witnessed an accident.
The pair watched as a black Chevy Tahoe came through the intersection and ran in other vehicle on Interstate 494 in South St. Paul, Minnesota, United Staes.
Still in her wedding dress, Taylor ran over to a woman and the side of the road and held her, keeping her calm until paramedics arrived.
Calvin snapped a picture of Rachel and posted it to Facebook, calling his wife a “rockstar bride,” as she held the woman for 15 minutes in her wedding dress.
Rachel had just completed her studies from Bethel University and had previously worked with women in labour, learning a few techniques about keeping people calm on the way.
Of the accident, Rachel said: “I just talked to her.
“I said, you’re so strong, you’re so brave, I’m so proud of you.”
“I just went into nurse mode.
“It seemed pretty natural. I was pretty surprised.
“I’ve always been lacking in confidence about my nursing abilities so it was nice to see that in a situation like that, I knew what to do.”
The injured woman, identified only as Peterson, told PioneerPress: “She was awesome and helped save my life by keeping me focused, and calm.
“She certainly is a gifted angel and chose the right career path.”
Peterson, who has a GoFundMe page to help pay for medical bills, is now recovering at home.
She said heating will take time, but hopes to meet Rachel and Calvin again and “possibly become forever friends.”
