Three teens pushed a woman’s car for more than five miles

For three teens living near Niagara Falls, a night run to the donut shop turned into a roadside rescue. It ended with them pushing a stranded stranger’s car for hours and inspiring others on Facebook.

Aeron McQuillin, 18, Bailey Campbell, 17, and Billy Tarbett, 15, were on their way to a Tim Hortons donut shop in Fonthill, Ontario, when they spotted a woman on the side of the road with smoke coming out of her car.

The three boys quickly diagnosed the problem as a leak that allowed the engine coolant and oil to mix. They also determined the car was too dangerous to drive.

The driver couldn’t afford a tow truck. So, Billy suggested that guys push the car. The woman lives more than five miles away.

The trio grabbed bottles of water and a speaker so they could start their trek “jamming out”. Morrison drove behind them with his hazard lights on for safety.

Bailey says they faced several obstacles. The first was a big hill 300 yards from the start. The battery died halfway through and they took a break. They had to charge it just to get back into neutral. They finally delivered the car back home after more than two-and-a-half hours of pushing. Bailey described the motorist as both thankful and amazed. They exchanged hugs, and everyone went home for some much-needed rest. The trio never got the woman’s full name.

Morrison snapped a couple of pictures of the teens, hoping to turn them into hometown heroes on social media. His Facebook post went viral, with positive comments coming in from as far away as Australia.
