We are still in shock from this weekend's horrific white nationalist demonstrations in Charlottesville, Virginia.

To catch you up, graphic video was released of a Dodge Challenger car deliberately driving into protesters at a peaceful anti-racist rally — killing and injuring dozens of people. One of the victims was 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

Heyer was attending the counter-protest with two of her friends, Marissa Blair and Marcus Martin, who fortunately (but narrowly) survived the attack.

In fact, Blair was a split second away from being hit by 20-year-old James Fields Jr. before Martin pushed her out of the way.

This photo (below) shows the moment Martin was plowed over by the vehicle after saving Blair's life:

Amazingly, Marcus survived the hit — but suffered a broken leg. What a hero.

You can listen to Marissa describe the incident (below)!

Our thoughts are with these two as they mourn the death of their friend and recover from the tragic events.
