MONCKS CORNER, SC (WCSC) — A delivery driver rushed into action and saved a child following an accident on a South Carolina highway on Thursday.
Jana Daley of Ethos Enterprises said the incident happened around 6:30 p.m. on Highway 52 at Moncks Corner and the rescuer was one of her drivers, whom she identified as Damien Rose.
Video provided by Ethos Enterprises shows Rose stopping her vehicle, rushing to the scene, and then holding a child.
At the time, Rose said he called it a day and was heading back to the office when he saw smoke coming from afar and then saw two cars involved in an accident.
Rose’s instinct then took over.
“So as soon as I got there, I parked my vehicle and ran straight for the car,” Rose said.
Rose said as soon as he got to one of the cars he heard a lot of screaming and screaming about a child.
“They were like, ‘Catch this kid! Catch this kid! ” Rose said.
Rose then noticed a child in the back of the vehicle and pulled him out. According to Rose, the child had sustained an injury as he was bleeding from the mouth.
Rose said he then tried to help the passenger in the other vehicle involved in the crash who was stuck, but the damage to the vehicle damaged the doors, so Rose waited for paramedics to arrive.
Rose said he was happy to be there to help, and said the family shook his hand and were “very grateful”.
“It feels good… It feels really good,” Rose said.
