Former NFL star helps rescue Calgary woman in Manitoba rollover

WINNIPEG - A former NFL football star from Los Angeles helped rescue a woman who ended up trapped in a ditch after rolling her mini-SUV over the weekend.

Brian Bosworth, known as "the Boz" from his linebacking days with the Seattle Seahawks in the 1980s, said he was on his way to the Winnipeg airport Saturday when he came across the accident scene on the Trans-Canada Highway near Falcon Lake in eastern Manitoba.

"I happened to tail in on the backside and there were ambulances and a fire truck. It looked like she rolled at least two or three times because the car ended up facing the opposite direction of oncoming traffic, upside down in the ditch," Bosworth said.
