(Nov. 29) Today's Top Headlines - Romney's son saves victims from accident



Josh Romney, son of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, said in a tweet on Friday that he saved four people after a car accident and included a photo of himself standing next to what appeared to be an overturned vehicle inside a house.

"Was first on scene to big accident, see pic of car in the house. I lifted 4 people out to safety. All ok. Thankful.", the tweet read.

Romney, who lives in Utah, told NBC News he was driving his family home from Thanksgiving dinner when the car sped by, went through an intersection, and into a home across the street.

"I drove to the accident site and entered the home where the car had come to a stop on its side," Romney said in a statement. "I opened the driver side door and spoke with the four passengers inside the car. Miraculously, they appeared to have no major injuries. I was able to help each of them get out of the car and lift them down to the ground."

There was little independent corroboration of Romney's account, but NBC affiliate KSL reported a car accident that took place Thursday night outside Salt Lake City that matches the one Romney describes, both in visuals and in geography.

According to the report, this is the second time a car has slammed into the home, which seems to be at a precarious curve in the road. The sheriff called it a "miracle" that no one was injured.
