UPS driver Ethan Callif of Columbus, Ohio, isn’t fooling anyone. “I’m just a regular guy,” he said. But sticking out from beneath his brown uniform collar, everyone can see his red cape.
It was a normal Thursday morning in July and Ethan was on his route when the unexpected happened. A traffic accident caused a motorist to lose control of her car and Ethan saw it crash into a deep pond.
“I had no thoughts,” said Ethan. “I just knew I had to go get her.”
Ethan parked his package car, ran fully-clothed into the pond and swam out to the sinking vehicle. The lady in the car climbed out to sit on the passenger window sill with her hands on the roof, but she was sinking fast. She couldn’t swim.
