TEXARKANA, AR (WCMH) — The 8-month-old girl suffered only minor scratches after she was thrown from the wreck and landed in a drainage ditch.
“There had to be some kind of divine intervention for her to end up being okay,” firefighter Josh Moore told KSLA.
Family members said they couldn’t find the toddler after she was thrown from the crash.
After searching, firefighters found the little girl about 35 feet away in a drainage grate in the middle of the median.
“The baby at the time – the 8-month-old – was actually sitting down in the grate, sitting up and looking up at us waiting for us to pull her out. She wasn’t screaming, she wasn’t crying, was just sitting there waiting for us,” Moore KSLA.
Four other people in the crash were not seriously injured, but all, including the infant girl, was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
