A Walterboro plumber who found a car behind his business rescued a woman found shot in the trunk of the car. Harold Groves’ daughter noticed an abandoned car behind their business in Walterboro. A couple hours later Groves went out to the white Buick and little did he know what would happen next.
“I walked to the front of the car and saw the keys on the seat, and I said ‘something is wrong here.’ So, I walked to the back of the car by the trunk, in fact I was about a foot from the bumper and I called 911 and I gave her the license tag number, and she said back away from that car, get out from around it the law is on the way,” says Groves.
Three men broke into 78-year-old Margaret Gooding’s Miley community home, shot her in the stomach, and threw her in the trunk of a car- left to die. Groves says God gave him wings.
“People try to say I’m a hero. I’m not a hero, God sent me there to take care of that lady and that’s what I did. I said if she lives that will be my Christmas present, and by golly, she’s living,” says Groves.
Gooding is expected to fully recover, she is in good condition.
Bond was denied for Stevie Lamont Aiken, Derrick Ladel Aiken and Nathaniel Harris of Walterboro and they each face several charges.
