Las Vegas crash victim searching for mystery hero who saved his life

Posted at 7:00 PM, Apr 28, 2017

Henry Clay is lucky to be alive after a nearly fatal crash on his way home near the U.S. 95 and Durango.

He says it all happened Tuesday night around 9:30. The last thing he remembers was talking through his Bluetooth while driving an exit away from his house.

The next thing he remembers was waking up in the hospital.  

"My arm was in a cast, I was sore all, my face was kind of hurting," Clay says.

He's now recovering at home. But looking at the pictures of his damaged car, he says it's amazing he survived. He believes someone must have pulled him out of his car to safety.

Now, he and his wife, Alicia, are hoping to use social media to track down the mystery Good Samaritan.

"Honestly, I'm humbled and blessed someone had my best interests at heart in that moment," Clay says.

The Nevada Highway Patrol said Clay was laying in the right hand shoulder by the time crews arrived.

The family hopes to meet the mystery hero so they can say thank you.

"I won't waste my second chance," Clay says.
