Helmet Cam Video of Motorcyclist's Good Deed Goes Viral

In today’s edition of the Good Stuff, a motorcyclist’s good deed goes viral.

Rhino Hooten always wears a helmet cam riding his motorcycle to work, just in case he gets in an accident. Not sure how that would help him, but it did capture an overturned car with a driver trapped inside.

"When she was snared in her seatbelt, it was wrapped around her upper body. Her suffocating was my thought... she was panicking; she couldn't get out," Hooten said.

Another driver who had also stopped to help was calling for a knife to cut the seatbelt.

Hooten worked quickly, freeing the driver with a pocket knife just as smoke started coming from the car.

Hooten’s footage has gone viral with over 600,000 views. He said the attention has been surprising, but he did what just came naturally to him.

    Can anyone please explain to me why my comments dated October 27-28 are still awaiting moderation? I asked this same question yesterday and still haven't received an answer. Thank you.
