    The Jamaican bobsleigh team was rescued by a good Samaritan after their van broke down in Calgary, Alberta, over the weekend.
    The perennial underdogs caught a lucky break in the same city where they made their Olympic debut in 1988.
    The debut became the subject of the 1993 film Cool Runnings, starring John Candy.
    The 12-person team was in town for a competition on Sunday.


    Kathleen Pulito, the team's social media director, told the Calgary Herald the team is on a shoestring budget and the van was supposed to take them across the country as they set their sights on the 2018 Winter Olympics.
    "We're just trying to do what we can, get one place to the next and hoping we don't run out of money," she said.
    Shortly after the team tweeted about their predicament, a GoFundMe page had sprouted up to try and raise enough money for repairs.
    David Schnerch was out doing some errands on Saturday when he passed by the van, and saw team members trying to fiddle with the vehicle's battery.

    Maybe they'll make another movie about it.
