Good Samaritans in Denver Rescue Prominent Defense Lawyer
Gary Lozow is one of Denver's most prominent criminal defense attorneys and a terrific guy. Yesterday morning, a driver ran a red light at a busy intersection and crashed into his car, sending it upside down into a creek, where it became submerged in water, with Gary locked inside. Here's the video.
Passersby and two security guards from an adjacent medical center jumped down a 14 foot embankment to reach the car, got it unlocked using a block of concrete they found, and pulled Gary, who was unconscious, out of his vehicle. The water was so cold, one of the rescuers required medical attention. Another seriously injured his leg. The creek was so high, had he not been pulled quickly from the car, he would have drowned.

“There was a person on every door and the front and the back of the car, and it was incredible. They literally pried that car open with their bare hands,” Peters said. Firefighters and rescue crews said they were surprised that Lozow made it out alive.
Gary has broken ribs and a broken hand, and reports from the hospital that he'll be okay.
Duane " Dog The Bounty Hounter" Chapman and his wife Beth issued a statement of thanks to the rescuers:
“Gary Lozow has been not only my lawyer but my friend he has represented me since I’m 16 years old.” Dog said that Lozow has been an important person in his family’s life for years. “He has been by my side through some of the biggest battles of my life. A father figure to both of us”.
Good work, Denverites. My best wishes to Gary and his wife Joyce for Gary's speedy recovery.
