One of the girls claimed that the man right there saved her life just when she was about to take her last breath. She was genuinely grateful for him.

At about 2:30 a.m. on July Fourth weekend, a vehicle with three females inside crashed into the Pascagoula River near Moss Point, Mississippi.

Luckily, a 16-year-old lad was in the ideal situation at the perfect time.

The car was driven off a boat ramp and into the river before drifting roughly 20 feet until sinking.

The vehicle’s driver claimed she was monitoring her GPS and was unaware she was driving into the sea, added the Moss Point Police Department.

Corion Evans removed his shirt, shoes, and phone before jumping into the lake.

The calls for help were clearly audible to him.

Evans believed he had the abilities necessary to help because he had been swimming since he was 3 years old.

Evans did not even think twice.

He simply thought he couldn’t allow any of these people to die; they must escape the sea. So the brave boy initiated the rescue immediately. He had nothing else on my mind; he told WLOX.

A buddy of his named Karon ′′KJ′′ Bradley joined him and assisted in getting the females onto the car’s top.

When Moss Point Cop – Gary Mercer arrived, he saw the teen already swimming.

Someone was being towed to shore by Mercer. However, as she began to tremble, in case he too swallowed some water.

Corion remembered watching the officer slip and cry out for assistance. He hurried towards the officer. He went and grabbed the policeman and swam him back until they were to the shallow area.

The good news is that Mercer and the three girls are recovering in the hospital.

The victims were about Twenty-five yards out of the shore, so swimming was required. Afterward, his legs were so exhausted, Evans claimed. By the way, anything may have been in the water. However, he wasn’t considering it.

Brandon Ashley, the chief of Moss Point, praised Corion for his courage and work.

In a statement, he praised Mr. Evans for his heroism and selflessness in putting his personal life on the line to save those who were in danger.

Ashley noted that they might have removed dead bodies from the sea unless Evans was there for them.

Corion was given a certificate of distinction from Moss Point city officials to appreciate his bravery.

Additionally, the authorities commended Mercer for his “bravery in the rescue.”

Marquita Evans, Corion’s mother, is pleased with her son’s heroism and grateful that no one was hurt.

Knowing how dangerous the rescue was, she is relieved that her kid survived.

Never hesitating, Corion jumped in to aid the girls’ and Mercer’s rescue. He never considered himself; thus, he was concerned with getting everyone out of the waters.

One of the survivors, Cora Watson, thanked Corion for his heroic deed on Facebook.

She stated, “The guy here saved my life just as I took my last breath.” I’m really grateful for him.
