The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories.
AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day.
As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.
With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.
BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) - Officials say Bowling Green State University football coach Dino Babers and an athletic trainer saved a woman from a burning car last weekend as the team was coming home from a game.
The Blade newspaper reports that Babers and Chelsea Lowe were aboard the first of four team buses traveling back from Buffalo to the northwest Ohio school on Interstate 90. They saw a car swerve in front of the bus, hit the center divider and catch fire.
The pair pulled the injured driver from the flaming wreck. She was identified as 25-year-old Amber Nettles.
Babers says he fulfilled a promise he made to a Good Samaritan who helped him when he was stranded on the road during a snowstorm nearly 30 years ago.
