The couple looked extremely frightened and their electrical system wasn't working. He told the driver he would help get his wife out first and then come and help him.
When he went to the wife's side, she was climbing out the window and the damsel in distress was none other than the wonderful Susan Lucci. He threw her over his shoulder and carried her to safety and then proceeded to help Chef Helmut Huber over to Degel's vehicle � a Range Rover. Degel told the press that "not too many people can say they've picked up Susan Lucci" adding that the couple was very grateful and thankful for the rescue. Maybe next time, other motorist will think twice before passing people by that are in need of help.
