Barbara Yde-Novy says her grandson Kelvin Yde, an Air National Guardsman, is among those that survived thanks to strangers who pulled him out of his burning car.

"They took him out, so he very well could've burned up in that vehicle," said Yde-Novy. "I'm so thankful that he's alive."

She shared a photo of him with FOX6, taken from his Facebook page.

"Four hours of surgery on his hip and I know all of his injuries on the right side," said Yde-Novy. "Three hours of surgery on his arm, and he has a broken ankle."

She picked strawberries on Thursday, a task she says Kelvin would help her with.

"He enjoyed a lot of them as he was picking," said Yde-Novy.

She hopes they can pick berries again soon, but for now, she's beyond grateful to all those who stepped up to help during one of the worst crashes in Racine County's recent history.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
