A couple of weeks ago, my 4 year old daughter and I were returning home from dance class around 9 that night. The car veered slightly to the right of the
road. I over compensated and jerked the car to the other side. To make a long story short, we wound up in the ditch upside down in a Corvette. My daughter was trapped upside down in a booster seat. She was crying for me to get her out. It was so dark I could not move much and was unable to reach the lock on the carseat. In just a few minutes, I heard and saw a young man down on our eye level. I began to beg him to get my baby out. Although he was not with any rescue team, he did not hesitate, he crawled in with us. Turned the ignition off, worked until he was able to get my baby out. He then extended his hand to help me crawl out of the car. He was an angel to risk his life in order to safe the lives of my little Girl and me. He will always be a hero in my mind.
