Florida Waiter Saves Patrons From SUV

A fast-acting waiter saved a girl and her mother from serious harm in Coral Springs on Saturday when an SUV jumped a curb and started barreling toward them, a fire-rescue spokesman said.

Tony Digesu, 22, a waiter at Roly Poly Sandwiches on University Drive, pulled the two away from their outdoor table when he saw a driver nearby lose control of her truck and head toward them. Digesu was clipped by the SUV, and Hazel Rademaker, 50, and her daughter, Renee Rademaker, 11, both of Coconut Creek, were hurt as well, but all the injuries were minor, fire-rescue spokesman Mike Moser said.
