New England Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork is a beast on and off the field, it seems. Just hours after the New England Patriots' huge win against the Indianapolis Colts, Wilfork was busy saving a drunken woman who was stuck in an overturned car.
According to a police report, Wilfork rushed to help a woman from Hanson on Sunday night after her Jeep Wrangler overturned on Route 1 in Foxboro.
Earlier on Sunday, Wilfork was his usual awesome self on the field as the Patriots booked their place in the Super Bowl thanks to an emphatic 45-7 victory. But Wilfork's heroics did not stop on the field, with the 400 pound man reaching into the car and pulling out the stranded woman with only one hand, per reports.
Right place at the right time
"Mary Ellen Brooks, 38, was trapped in the wreck at 12:45 a.m. when the 325-pound Wilfork, 33, fresh off the Pats’ 45-7 whipping of the Indianapolis Colts at Gillette Stadium, appeared at her side," the Boston Herald reported.
"Police said Trooper Kenneth Proulx pulled up, held the driver’s side door open, “and Vince Wilfork reached in and helped lift the operator (Brooks) out of the vehicle with one hand.”"

Wilfork the good samaritan
On Monday, Vince Wilfork spoke about the incident and played down his good samaritan work.
“I saw somebody that needed help, and I helped,” Wilfork told the media on Monday. I think anybody would do the same thing."
Reports revealed that the woman concerned was arrested immediately after the incident on charges of drunk driving and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.
