LSU wide receiver Travin Dural put in some timely work before the Tigers preseason camp started, and it saved a woman’s life.

Dural and his cousin, Southern football player Randall Menard, rescued a woman who was trapped in her toppled SUV.

From the Advocate:

Dural, while leaving his Breaux Bridge home, passed an overturned SUV at about 10 p.m. July 30. A woman had swerved off Zin Zin Road, and her Nissan SUV landed upside down in a waterless ditch. Both front doors were jammed. The driver’s side door was crushed against the side wall of the 6-foot-deep trench.

She was hanging upside down from the driver’s seat, incapable of reaching or opening the back doors, said Michael McQuade, a St. Martin Sheriff deputy who was one of the first on the scene.

“She was trapped in the vehicle,” McQuade said.

Dural, along with his cousin, Southern receiver Randall Menard, pried open the rear passenger door and pulled out the woman from the vehicle, McQuade said.

“We had to muscle it open,” Dural said.

“He used his strength,” McQuade said.

The woman somehow avoided injury.
