Affeldt helps victim after Caldecott Tunnel crash
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A San Francisco Giants relief pitcher and his firefighter friends happened to be in the right place at the right time when an accident victim needed help.
Jeremy Affeldt drove into the Caldecott Tunnel seconds after an accident on Friday evening. Affeldt had some visiting firefighters riding with him and they freed the woman from her car then took care of her until paramedics arrived.
She escaped with minor injuries.
The firefighters live near Affeldt's off-season home in Spokane, Washington and they visit him in San Francisco every September.
All of them had just witnessed Yusmeiro Petit's near-perfect game.
