A former NFL football star from Los Angeles assisted with the rescue of a woman who rolled her mini-SUV several times Saturday afternoon near Falcon Lake and ended up trapped and hidden in a ditch.

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 when he approached the accident scene on the Trans-Canada Highway near Whitemouth River.

"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.

RCMP Sgt. Line Karpish said a 39-year-old woman from Calgary was behind the wheel. Karpish said the woman was travelling eastbound on the Trans-Canada to Ontario. She hit the shoulder, the vehicle rolled and hit the ditch. Karpish said a 26-year-old man from Calgary was also in the vehicle, but he was not trapped.

Bosworth said the wreck couldn't be seen easily from the highway. He said the shoulder on that stretch of the road took a dramatic drop and the car landed in a swampy area.

"She could have stayed there for hours behind a bunch of weeds. Her car was hidden ... . She was very fortunate they got to her so quickly. Her car was crushed," he said.

The paramedics had to use the jaws of life to get the woman out. Bosworth said they dismantled the vehicle completely. He was asked to take a piece of equipment down to the paramedics and once he got down to the victim, he said it was clear they needed more manpower.

"She was in shock and in pain and we couldn't really move her. Her legs were pinned. We had to cut the steering wheel off. She was screaming every time we moved her," Bosworth said. "It took five or six guys to get her into the ambulance. "

Driver and passenger were taken to St. Anne's Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

"I see that a lot in the area, the highways aren't the greatest. They are not very forgiving highways. She's lucky. She just missed the guardrail to the river. This could have been really bad," Karpish said.

Bosworth was fishing in the area with his son.

I was wondering what happened to this guy. I was just watching top 10 nfl draft busts on NFL Network the other day.

Cool. Remember a bunch of years back when Herschel Walker did something similar?
Does this mean Boz has MPD?

Did he fly a Harley off a ramp into a Huey shortly thereafter?

If not, he's lost his burst.

He had to retire due to a chronic bad shoulder. He never really had a chance to play all that much.

For some reason, whenever I saw Brian Bosworth, I was thinking of some child actor. He played on Family Ties as the little boy who wanted to be like Alex (Michael J Fox).

Ah, yes... Brian Bonsall. His breakout role was on Star Trek the Next Generation as Worf's son. After that, he... um... probably got in trouble with the law?

Should indeed. Unfortunately, it does. First of all, had it not been The Boz nobody would have heard of this event outside of the immediate 4 or 5 county area.

However, big ups to him no doubt.
