KENNEWICK, WA – A tear filled reunion as Dani Hansen, the teen who was knocked unconscious in a car accident and the mystery woman who held her hand until the ambulance arrived met face to face for the first time.

Through hundreds of Facebook comments that you sent us, we found her. Torena O'Rorke was the amazing woman who let Hansen know that everything would be ok after she experienced one of the most terrifying moments of her life.

O'Rorke heard a loud bang outside her office near Gage Boulevard in Kennewick. She looked outside, saw the car accident, ran to Hansen who had blacked out from the impact and held her.

"I just kept saying squeeze," explained O'Rorke. "Ok 5 seconds would go by and I'd say squeeze again they're almost here. Can you hear the sirens? They're almost here."

Dani never saw Torena's face until Monday when they were reunited. O'Rorke says she just did what her motherly instincts told her to do. She thinks anyone would do the same.

"Yeah, but not everybody would stop," explained Dani's mother Marie. "Not everybody would hold her like you did."

Dani's mom was just glad that someone could fill in and hold her daughter when she could not. All three women told us that if there is one takeaway they would like to see from this life experience, it is for others to see their story and do the same. They think everyone deserves that same kindness.
