Did you know that Taylor Swift hands out light-up bracelets that synchronize to her music at all of her concerts? Does the idea sound dumb to you? Well, how dumb are they now that you know that they SAVE teens’ lives??? That’s right! Not dumb at all!
WBRZ2, a local Louisiana news outlet, reports that three young women were involved in a car accident on their way home from a Taylor Swift concert in Baton Rouge. The incident occurred when the driver, Elizabeth Dazzio, nodded off at the wheel and totaled the vehicle. Dazzio was knocked unconscious and the remaining passengers used the lights from their Taylor Swift bracelets to signal help.
Dazzio was driving her sister, Caroline, and a friend home from the show when she fell asleep and wrecked near the I-110/Scenic Highway exit. Dazzio was knocked unconscious, the car was mangled up and the two girls were trapped.
“You could smell the gas and smoke,” Caroline said. “I was just thinking we need to get out of this car.”
The girls began waiving their bracelets, ultimately attracting the attention of another driver:
Eventually, someone stopped. A woman told the girls she saw the lights and knew someone was in trouble.
“She could tell that there was someone in the car,” Caroline told WBRZ reporter Brett Buffington in an exclusive interview on WBRZ News 2 at 10:00 Wednesday.
The woman and a man with her helped pull the girls out and called for first responders
Elizabeth Dazzio is still in the hospital, but will be released soon. Sure, she and her friends almost died, but it was all worth it for the following tweet:
