WEST, Texas There was a new plea from West Tuesday for help finding the strangers who raced to the rescue of last week's fertilizer plant explosion.

Sonya Moorman has had three surgeries to save her badly-damaged foot. She lived half a block from the fertilizer plant.

"She said it was like an earthquake," said Moorman's brother, Keith Bond.

On the phone from Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center in Waco, Moorman told News 8 her spirits are high.

"A Good Samaritan came through the smoke in a vehicle and stopped," Bond said. "He and my niece loaded my sister into his car and he drove her to Hillcrest from West."

On night of the blast, Bond a licensed police officer first ran to the hospital to check on his sister. Then it was back to West to help first responders.

Now, he'd like to find the person who rescued his sister and likely helped save her foot.

"They ll never know how much they re appreciated; I know we do," Bond said. "Hopefully, somewhere we can repay that."

Moorman's brother has been using social media in an effort to identify that guardian angel.
