20-year-old saves woman who jumped from Georgia bridge

20-year-old saves woman who jumped from Georgia bridge

Jay Juarez didn’t think twice when he saw someone who needed his help. The 20-year-old was in the parking lot near the Oglethorpe Bridge in Albany, Georgia, this past weekend when he noticed a crowd of people with their cellphones out, recording something in the Flint River. When he realized that someone had just jumped into the river from the bridge, he immediately went into action. “I was looking to see if I could see somebody, and I saw someone face up in the water floating,” Juarez told WGXA-TV. “She seemed to be unconscious.” Juarez went into the water to save the woman, while fighting the heavy currents of the river. He was able to get hold of her, get a grip on a tree branch and hold the woman against a tree. “I kept holding her, keeping her braced up against the tree trying to make sure she’s staying up,' Juarez said. Once out of the water, Juarez was taken to the hospital to be treated for hypothermia. He was later released. Juarez said he doesn’t consider himself a hero. “She just had a rough time and she just felt like giving up at that point,” Juarez said. Information from WGXA-TV was used this report

Trump commutes sentence of ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich President Donald Trump on Tuesday issued a series of surprise high profile pardons and commutations, moving to free former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D), who was convicted in 2011 of corruption for essentially trying to sell the official appointment to fill the U.S. Senate seat of President Barack Obama. 'He served eight years in jail - a long time,' the President told reporters, as he noted he saw Blagojevich's wife on Fox News, and knew of Blagojevich from his time on 'Celebrity Apprentice.' 'That was a tremendously powerful and ridiculous sentence,' Mr. Trump added, pointedly name-checking former FBI Director James Comey, and the special prosecutor in the case, former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald. Blagojevich was Governor of Illinois in 2008 when Barack Obama won the White House, thus opening his seat in the Senate. Evidence gathered by the feds showed Blagojevich quickly saw the vacant Senate seat not as a political opportunity, but one which could net the Illinois Democrat big money. 'I've got this thing and it's f#$%ing golden,' Blagojevich was heard on a secretly recorded tape. 'And I'm just not giving it up for f&#$ing nothing!'  In his indictment and trial, prosecutors described Blagojevich as angling for a quid pro quo with a possible Senate pick, where they would set up a non-profit company which would employ Blagojevich after he served as Illinois Governor, funneling big money to him as payback for the Senate appointment. Before being tried and convicted of corruption, Blagojevich was impeached by the Illinois State House, and then convicted and removed from office by the Illinois State Senate in early 2009. The vote was unanimous. Illinois GOP lawmakers in the Congress issued a joint statement two hours after the President's announcement, saying they were disappointed by Mr. Trump's move. 'Blagojevich is the face of public corruption in Illinois,' the lawmakers stated, adding 'we shouldn't let those who breached the public trust off the hook.' The President on Tuesday also issued a pardon for David Safavian, who was convicted of obstruction of justice and making false statements in connection with his involvement in the famous Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal.
