Meet Travis Trent, a brand new father in Tacoma Washington. He’s just going to the parking lot after the birth of his baby. Opening the vehicle, he notices a burning smell and sees smoke wafting out of the dashboard.
Thinking quickly and knowing that most would have advised him to abandon the car and get out of the garage before the car lights up, he instead quickly drives it out of the garage and away from the hospital structures. Leaving the car and looking back, he sees it ignite and a fireball destroy it.
The local fire captain later lauds his bravery and the fact that he saved the parking structure, other cars, and the adjacent hospital. It happens, though, that Trent’s brother works as a car salesman for a local dealership, and he recounts the story to his manager. The dealership, recognizing Trent’s bravery, decides to replace Trent’s car in a surprise presentation.
Trent, baby, and mother are shocked, delighted, grateful, and able to start the new year with a new car.
