Nurse says she played a part in rescuing man from burning car

Posted: Updated:
MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News)- A nurse is speaking out  about her role in rescuing a man from a burning vehicle.

We initially reported five young men in a ULM fraternity were responsible for the rescue of Keyshawne Greene from a burning car on May 4.

Now, Lisa Bennett of Monroe says she too played a part in making sure Greene made it out of that car.

In an exclusive interview with KNOE she tells us the story she says, she will never forget. 

Lisa is a licensed registered nurse, she has been trained to handle trauma events.

In the early morning hours on May 4. Lisa was relaxing on her porch with her boyfriend until she heard a loud boom, seconds later an even louder boom.

Lisa lives about three blocks from where the accident happened. When she heard the boom she and her boyfriend immediately got in their truck and went to the scene.

When they got there they saw a car in flames with a man inside trying to escape.

Lisa says that first attempt to save Keyshawne from the car failed, that's when she thought of other ways to get the Keyshawn out.

Lisa saw a clear path to the Keyshawne's belt and attempted to grab it, suffering severe burns in the process.

While pulling the man out of the burning car she received help from two ULM students, she doesn't remember their names.

However, there is one thing she will never forget.
