Friday, Deanna Owen Shumate drove her car into Star Lake in what investigators are calling an accident. Her friends say she had just left their 50th high school class reunion at the Hoover Country Club. She did not survive the accident.
Two John Carroll High School students happened to see the accident and stopped to help. The city of Hoover is going to honor the actions of Tyler Harris, 16, and Tristen Jernigan, 16, but they say they don't deserve the recognition.
The boys had just left a lacrosse banquet for their school when they say Shumate's car in the lake. They jumped into the water and swam to her car, but by the time they reached it, it was underwater.
The teens say the kept diving down, trying to break the windows but they were unsuccessful. Harris and Jernigan say they kept diving anyway so they could tell rescuers where the vehicle was.
"We just couldn't break the glass or anything," Jernigan said. "I have in the back of my head...that guilt. Why didn't get do more?"
While the boys don't see themselves as heroes, the city of Hoover says they will recognize their actions in just a few weeks.
