Well, I got up early this morning to do some work around the house. I mainly needed to clean the garage for a garage sale this weekend. About 11:40 I heard a loud pop sound and it shook the garage. I thought Colin (my son) was messing around and wrecked his bike into the garage so I ran out to check and noticed a huge cloud of dust at the end of the driveway and knew it was a wreck. I dialed 911 from my cell as I was running up the driveway and I saw a young lady laying face down in the neighbors front yard. I couldn't see a car because of the dust so I ran to the lady. I thought maybe someone hit her walking until the dust cleared. She was badly beaten up and bleeding from her head and a few other places here and there. This was about the same time 911 answered. I was frantic telling the 911 operator that I needed help ASAP and that there was a car overturned with 1 victim ejected from the car. She was semi conscience and I touched her to let her know I was there to help while speaking to 911. She was starting to come to and I noticed a baby stroller that was about 30 feet from the car. I tried to calm her and I asked if there was anyone else in the car. She suddenly regained full consciousness and began screaming "my baby, my baby" then went semi conscience again. I ran to the car, still on the phone with 911, and I noticed a strong smell of gas. Fearing the worse, I pried the drivers door open. There was so much stuff in the car I couldn't see the baby. I was in a panic and began grabbing stuff and tossing it from the car. Then I heard what sounded like gasping and I saw the infant seat firmly strapped in the back seat. As I reached under it to feel for the baby I felt her tiny little head and lifted it just a bit and she began crying. Apparently since the car was upside down the straps that held her in were pressing against her throat and strangling her. I tried to undo the belts but I couldn't so I ran back to my garage to get a razor knife. By the time I got back a nurse who was passing by was there with the lady and another man trying to get the baby out. I handed him the knife and he cut it as I pulled the car seat out. There she was, a beautiful little 3-4 week old baby girl. Her face was a little blue but other than a few minor cuts she was fine. I got her out of the seat and took her over to her mom to show her that her baby was fine to calm her some. I began talking to her telling her how pretty her baby was and asking her basic questions about the baby trying to keep her focused. The baby was named Haley and I told her that my little one was named Haley too and she smiled but soon went semi conscience again. I asked her how old the baby was and she said she didn't know. I asked her if she knew where she was or where she was going and she mumbled another I don't know. Then she asked where her baby was and she was looking right at her. I took the baby away so she could stabilize her some. I focused my attention back to the baby again and had Colin go get a wet towel to wipe her off some and cool her down some (It was in the 90's with the sun beating down on us). Finally I heard sirens in the distance and the first fireman arrived. He looked the baby over while I held her and he asked the State Patrol office to get care flight for the mother. She was fading pretty quickly. I was now more concerned about the baby and if mom wasn't going to make it I just felt the baby shouldn't be near her so we walked about 30 yards away as the fireman assisted the nurse with the mom. Finally a squad arrived and I turned the baby over to the pros. It was then that it all hit me and I started to realize what had just happened. I never thought that I would know what to do in a true emergency but I did. I began surveying the scene and I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I never paid any attention to the car until then. It was a black dodge neon! Just like Patty's car and Amanda's boyfriend Josh's car. And either one of them were due home at any time. If I had noticed it was a neon when I first saw the car I would have been in a panic (Patty was bringing home a co-worker with her and I didn't know what she looked like for sure). I called the hospital this evening and since I didn't know the ladies first name they wouldn't give me any details other than she was admitted but Haley, they said was treated and released and was doing fine. Quite possibly, I helped save both of their lives and I thank God above that I handled everything the way I did. One of the Patrol officers even thanked me for doing what I did. I told him "I just did what anyone would have done right?" He said, "unfortunately no, most people just want to stand around and watch. Very few people get involved and risk getting into a car that is pouring gas out and could ignite at any time to save someone else. You did good". I may have did my part but when you look at the pictures you will see the only part that isn't crushed is the drivers side in the rear. God protected that baby, I just comforted her until help got there.
