An employee of Kingfish Pest Control, based in Jacksonville, Fla., witnessed a car accident on Feb. 14 and was able to use some of his termite tools to help the passengers.

Michael Parrish, who has been a service manager at Kingfish Pest Control for about a year, witnessed a rollover car accident in the Jacksonville area. A Jeep lost control going about 75 miles per hour, and rolled about five times before coming to a rest.

Parrish assisted a Florida Highway Patrol officer in rescuing the two passengers from the vehicle.

Parrish told Pest Management Professional that he used a pick mattock, similar to a pick axe, to help open the car doors to get the passengers out. The passengers only had minor injuries from the accident.

In a Facebook post about the incident, Parrish wrote that both passengers had their seat belts on, and reminded everyone that seat belts can save lives.

In October 2021, Parrish also helped track down the owner of a lost wallet.
