TRUSSVILLE, AL (WBRC) -

Last week this time we were waiting for the temperature to rise so that we could thaw out from the winter storm.

There was frustration, gridlock, and abandoned cars but a number of snow angels emerged to help many during a difficult situation.

FOX6 News Reporter Ronda Robinson spoke with Andy Mayer, who said he's one of many snow angels.

"I just knew they needed help and I was able to do that," Mayer said.

By that he means he offered his towing services for free after last week's snowstorm.

He saw a number of pleas for help on the What's Happening in Trussville Facebook Page So he grabbed his truck and hit the icy road.

"I started seeing messages about people being stranded. Some were trapped in cars and some run out of gas. I went all the way to Lakeshore, 280, Pinson, Trussville, Argo, that whole area we just started pulling people," he said.

It was a lot of hard work but Andy remembers his hardest tow was a car in Pinson.

"This hill was long and steep. She ended up sideways in a ditch. We ended up getting it out. It was scary to be honest with you," he said.

At one point Andy and his 11-year-old son helped direct traffic. While out helping others, Andy said he even got caught in his own sticky situation.

"I slid and wrecked my truck and I needed a ride home," Andy said.

Thankfully in the same spirit of Andy helping others, someone came to Andy's rescue.
