St. Petersburg, Florida-- The video of what happened outside the Publix grocery store on 54th Avenue South in St. Petersburg, is hard for Eugene Stenov's brother, Alex to watch.
"Oh geez! No way. No way! I can't believe what I'm seeing," Alex said as he watched the newly released footage. "I can't see how the person didn't see him. I mean he's right there? It's daylight! You can see everything!"
On the afternoon of January 22nd, Eugene was walking out of the store, into the parking lot, when suddenly, he was hit by an SUV. The driver, an elderly woman.
Immediately, the video shows a host of firefighters and Publix grocery store employees rush to Eugene's aide, lifting the SUV off of his body, and pulling the 75-year-old to safety.
"Those heroes just appeared out of nowhere! He's a big guy," Alex said, still watching the video. How could you miss six-foot, two-inches and 250 pounds? The car...what, 3,000 pounds?"
Eugene suffered multiple injuries to most of his body. He's undergone surgical procedures and is currently recovering in a rehab facility in the area.
Alex says his brother may never be the same again.
"The whole side of him, other parts of him...I don't think will ever be the same. It's hurtful to see that. He's in for a long ride".
As for how Alex feels about the driver responsible?
"I don't know what to say. Some things in life, you just have no words. This is one of those where I don't have any words."
There currently are no plans in the works for a lawsuit, and there are no charges filed against the driver.
