High school runner helps member of other team to finish line

 
Would you give up the chance at winning a race to help someone on another school’s team cross the finish line? That’s what Meghan Vogel of West-Liberty Salem High School in Ohio did at a race last week, and she’s been seen on various news outlets ever since.

 

When Vogel saw Arden McMath, a sophomore at Arlington High School, fall to the track, she helped her up and supported her until the pair reached the finish line, where Vogel let McMath cross the line ahead of her.
 
The moment was caught onscreen for the entire audience of the track meet to see, which allowed medical professionals to spot and aid McMath quickly. It also provided footage of Vogel’s selfless act. By the official rules, Vogel would be disqualified for aiding another runner, but officials were so moved by her actions that both she and McMath remained in the race results (they finished 14th and 15th place).
 
Throughout the publicity following the event, Vogel has remained humble about her action. “I don’t consider myself a hero,” Vogel told ESPN. “I just did what I knew was right and what I was supposed to do.”
