Taylor Swift 1989 Concert Wristbands Save Three Teenagers’ Lives In Car Crash
Taylor Swift can’t believe the light-up wristbands from her “1989” world tour helped save the lives of three teenage girls. On Thursday, the pop star tweeted a link to the news story, writing, “This is unreal. I’m so happy they’re okay.”
According to WBRZ, Elizabeth Dazzio, her sister Caroline Dazzio, and a friend named Emma were driving from Swift’s Baton Rouge, Louisiana concert last Friday when Elizabeth fell asleep at the wheel and crashed the car. Elizabeth was knocked unconscious, and Caroline and Emma were trapped in the back of the wrecked vehicle. Avery Talbot, a friend of the trio, was not involved in the scary accident but described the crash on Swift’s website. She wrote, “On her way home [Elizabeth] unfortunately fell asleep while getting off the interstate and got stuck under a pole. It was almost 1 A.M. and pitch black and the girls and totaled car could not be seen.”
Talbot went on to write that Caroline and Emma weren’t sure how they were going to get help until one of their wristbands from the Swift concert flashed. “As you touch your bracelet post concert, it lights up and changes color,” explained Talbot, adding, “They started tapping the Bracelets to the windows & eventually a lady pulled aside to help. She said without those bracelets they probably would have not been seen… A Taylor Swift bracelet saved [their lives].”
The woman who stopped to help the teens, and her male friend, pulled the girls from the damaged car, and then called 911. Elizabeth, who was hospitalized following the accident, is expected to make a full recovery. Swift’s wristbands are given out to every single attendee at each concert on her new world tour. What do you think of the fans using them to draw attention in an emergency?
