Taylor Swift is known for being pretty awesome to her fans, but this time she outdid herself — without even realizing it.
Three girls from Louisiana are crediting the pop star and her concert producers with saving their lives after a car crash on May 5. Elizabeth Dazzio, her sister Caroline and a friend were attending part of Swift’s 1989 tour when they received a light-up bracelet that would synchronize with the songs being played. Everyone got one:
When the concert finally wrapped up for the night, the girls piled into Dazzio’s car to head back home. But the event must have tired her out, because Dazzio fell asleep at the wheel and crashed into a pole. She was immediately knocked unconscious, the car was mangled and the other two girls were trapped.
“You could smell the gas and smoke,” Caroline told Fox 5. “I was just thinking we need to get out of this car.”
The first thought the girls had was to use their phones to call for help, but two of them were dead while the other was missing. They tried shouting, but nobody could hear them.
“When the two girls in the back (Emma & Caroline) realized they could not receive help one of their bracelets flashed. The bracelet from the concert. It lit up,” a friend who attended the concert with Dazzio wrote on Swift’s website. “As you touch your bracelet post concert, it lights up and changes color. They started tapping the bracelets to the windows & eventually a lady pulled aside to help and call 911.”
The girls were quickly pulled from the car and an ambulance arrived on scene. Swift later heard of the story and responded on social media:
This is unreal. I'm so happy they're okay. http://t.co/UnylIwhZv5

Dazzio, in turn, replied to say thanks:
