TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson woman who was hit by a car while helping someone push a stalled car on the south side is hoping to find four men she claims lifted the car off of her the night of her accident.

"She believes they're good people who had a good heart at that moment," said the woman's sister Nayelly Santos.

Norma Santos was hit by a car on Wednesday, April 19, near South Campbell and East Irvington Roads.

She was helping push a stalled car when she was hit by another car.

"She was hit by a car coming down Campbell southbound," said Santos just a few days after the incident. "He hit her and ran her over and pinned her under the car."

Santos said there were six men total that helped her sister the night of accident, which included a first responder.

"She says she heard the first responder asking for help,"  Santos said.

The family was able to get in contact with two of the men, but is still in search of the remaining four.

"She says she feels it in her heart that they're the ones who saved her,"  Santos said. "You know, that sixth sense to help this person who was also helping someone else. She just wants to say thank you."

The mother of three is a youth soccer coach and recently changed careers to help others.

"She wonders about her kids, her soccer teams, like you know, who's coaching them now?"  Santos said. "She's thinking about her 3-year-old twins. The boys. They come and see her and she just wants to wrap her arms around them, and it's kind of hard at times that she can't."
