Holyoke family reunites with good Samaritans following crash

Posted: Updated:

A woman is reunited with those who helped her following a weekend crash.

Joanne Dumas was hit on Cabot St. in Holyoke on Saturday and good Samaritans quickly jumped to save her.

The Dumas family wanted to say thank you to the men who helped and they turned to our viewers to find those local heroes.

Tuesday afternoon, the Dumas family reunited with those men who saved her.

It was an emotional afternoon for the family after they reconnected with those they call Joanne's "angels."

They helped Dumas out of her car after that serious crash this weekend.

Western Mass News reached out to the viewers to help find these men. We received hundreds of 'Likes' on Facebook and countless comments on our page.

Within hours, we were connected to the men who helped in a dire time of need.

The Dumas family says Jimmy Oliver, Cleveland Borden, and Jose Ruiz acted without any regard to their own personal safety, which they say makes a true hero.

"I didn't even realize what happened until it was over with. You kind of think back like, 'Wow. I just got someone out of a car that could have exploded.' I didn't really have time to think about the danger or anything else that was going on around me...just that someone needed help and I was there to be able to help them," said Cleveland Borden, who helped rescue Dumas.

Dumas added, "I thank them a lot. You know how good luck comes around? I hope it comes to them."

All three men say they were happy to wish Dumas well as her recovery process continues.

Dumas said that she could not be more thankful for all these men have done for her and maintains that without them, she might not have been here today.
