Two Mich. Teens on Spring Break Save Florida Couple

PALM COAST, Fla. (AP) — Deputies say two Michigan teens on spring break in north Florida pulled a couple from a burning car following a crash.

The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office says Cody Decker and Luke Vaughn, both 17, saw a vehicle crash and catch fire seconds after it sped past them on Tuesday.

Deputies say the teens pulled 42-year-old Carlos Adams and 44-year-old Tracy Lopez from the burning 2002 Jaguar. One of the teens broke the glass and bent the door frame to get the couple out.

Flagler County Sheriff Donald W. Fleming says their quick action likely saved the couple.

The victims were taken to the hospital in critical condition. The teens were treated by rescue crews for minor injuries to their hands.

The teens are from Dewitt, Mich.
