Early in 2017, 27-year-old Trooper Ed Andersson was called to the scene of an accident. Upon arriving and witnessing an overturned car, he began to block off the road and set up road flares as he had done a dozen times before. That’s when a bullet struck him in the chest. Before he had a chance to even to process what had happened, the assailant was on top of him. Severely weakened from the gunshot wound, the Trooper could put up little resistance as his head was repeatedly slammed, again and again, into the concrete. Andersson had to have believed that this is how he would die - until he heard the voice of another man. Someone was offering him help. Seconds later, the assailant was dead on the ground from the bullet of a good Samaritan’s gun, and Andersson was receiving first aid from his savior's wife. Two people with the fortitude to confront evil, and the strength and ability to do what was necessary - saved that Troopers life.
"We did what we had to do. ... God put us in the right place at the right time." The Samaritan said.
