A major car crash which took place on the Route 90 bridge in Ocean City on Sunday left eight people, including a toddler, injured and hospitalized.
The Ocean City fire and police units were sent at the scene as the call was upgraded to a rescue response.
During the collision, an 18-month-old toddler was ejected from one of the cars which was left hanging over the guardrail and fell into the Assawoman Bay. Luckily, an angel in the form of an onlooker who found themselves at the scene came to the rescue. The good Samaritan jumped into the bay and saved the little one’s life, WJZ reports.
According to Rob Korb, who works at the fire department, the rescuer initiated CPR on the toddler before both of them were taken to land by a nearby boater. The child was transported by Maryland State Police Aviation Command to John’s Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore. The rest of the people who were involved in the crash were as well hospitalized.
