                            'I freak out every time I talk about it': Man who tried to help 'stranded' woman on highway finds out it's actually a trap

A man found himself in a tight spot when he was trying to play the Good Samaritan along a Detroit highway. John Hadyniak was on his way back home on the Interstate 94 around 10 pm on Sunday night when something intriguing happened. 

As reported by WXYZ, when he spotted a woman on the side of the road fixing a flat tire, he decided to stop and help her out. However, that was not the best plan of action and immediately he went on high alert. "The trunk on the car was closed and I noticed there was no plate on the trunk of the car. I noticed that was no jack and she had a tire iron with her and things didn't add up, it was just a bad gut feeling," John, who is a mechanic, revealed. 



 

He decided it would be wise to be a bit careful and shared, "I put the flashlight on her when I got out of the car. And about 15 feet off the side of the road there was a guy laying in the grass. As soon as I hit him with the light, he jumped into the car and took off down 94". Even after the incident, John shares that he still has a million 'what-ifs' in his head about what could have possibly happened had he not been careful. 

"Worst case scenario, I could have got bopped in the head and laid dead on the side of the expressway. They would have robbed me, stole my car. Everything if I hadn't seen him it would have been bad news," Hadyniak added.

John took to Facebook to share the incident and the foiled plan in the hope that people would become aware. He also informed the police and gave them a description of the car which happened to be a silver Nissan Sentra. "Gives me goosebumps, I freak out every time I talk about it. The 'what ifs' are so many," John continued.
