The motto of the Seabees is Can Do. And that would apply to Construction Mechanic 3rd Class Leah Rapp. The Petty Officer donated a kidney to her best friend, Susan Stout.
A Navy construction crew passing by the scene of a horrific wreck joined forces with emergency rescue workers to keep a mangled BMW carrying a California mother, her 10-year-old daughter and 10-week baby from slipping off a bridge and plunging into a 100-foot deep ravine.
The vehicle dangled off the bridge Thursday after being rear-ended by a tractor-trailer, which broke through the concrete barriers and fell into the creek bed. The truck driver was killed.
Santa Barbara County, Calif., Fire Department rescue workers had been trying to pry Kelli Lynne Groves and her children out the car when the Navy Seabees were driving by with their equipment.
The Seabees motto is: Can Do. And they did. . .
Hand Salute: Lou (Thanks!)
