John Hadyniak's story of averting a potential disaster may make you think twice about helping others.

Driving on his way home at 10 p.m. on Sunday, the mechanic of Belleville, Michigan, saw a women in distress off the I-94. She was attempting to change a tire off the side of the busy highway near Belleville road. He wasn't about to feign ignorance and drive away.

But once his instinct to help the woman kicked in, something seemed off about the scenario when he pulled over and got out of the car.

After a brief assessment of the situation, his intuition to flee the scene may have saved his life.




Locals news WXYZ of ABC reported reminders to always trust your instincts.

Hadyniak told the news station about the red flags that made him suspicious.

"I noticed that there was no jack and she had a tire iron in her hand. Things didn't add up. It was just a bad feeling."

Going off of a gut feeling, Hadyniak pulled out his flashlight.

"I put the flashlight on her when I got out of the car. And about 15 feet off the side of the road there was a guy laying in the grass."
"I hit him with the light. He got up and jumped in the car and took off down I-94."


He decided to warn others on Facebook about his close call.

He was lucky. His altruistic tendency could have resulted in something far worse that night.

"Worse case scenario, I could have got bopped in the head with that, laid dead on the side of the expressway."
"(They could have) robbed me, stole my car – everything. If I wouldn't have seen him, it would have been bad news."

Unfortunately, the incident made others skeptical about helping others who actually do need help. But they were glad Hadyniak was okay.








Here is a YouTube video of the WXYZ-TV Detroit news report.




Hadyniak filed a police report involving the couple driving the silver Nissan Sentra.

It seems that it's far more common to hear somebody complain about their job than to hear them give a glowing review of their line of work.

How many times have you stubbed your toe because you weren't paying attention and banged it against some furniture? Hurts like hell, doesn't it? Have you ever slipped outside because you didn't realize the rain––or ice––on the roads would be so slick? You probably have (and hopefully you didn't bang yourself up too much). You probably hope no one was looking... to save yourself from certain embarrassment.

Believe it or not, there are people out there who've fared worse.

Why are you mad? It's unhealthy. Do we even comprehend why we're miffed half the time? I don't, I've lost track. Although, I do get angry at the drop of a hat. So each origin can be arduous to track.

There really is no exact explanation as to why tempers can be set off. Of course, we are in sensitive times and emotions are are always at an edge, so that doesn't help.

But we really need to do some serious examining into what sets us off so easily. Anger is not an emotion that is sustainable or often has to do with logic. But let's try to find some...
