    Infant ejected from car is found alive in storm drain

    Story highlights


    • Infant ejected from car during crash
    • Child was found alive in storm drain




    (CNN)It's a story of survival that's amazed even seasoned firefighters -- an infant ejected during a car crash ends up in a storm drain, 25-feet away. She is found alive, reaching up to rescuers and with only a scratch on her forehead.

    That's the scene that unfolded Friday night along Interstate 30 in Texarkana, Arkansas after a truck apparently sideswiped a car, officials told CNN affiliate KSLA.
    The family vehicle flipped over and the 8-month old girl was ejected. Survivors looked for her but could not find her.
    Rescuers arrived and scoured the area and zeroed in on a patch of hay in the median after hearing a sound.
    To their amazement, searchers found the infant inside a storm drain -- more than two dozen feet from the roadway.
    "The baby ... was sitting up and looking up at us waiting for us to pull her out," Texarkana firefighter Josh Moore said.
    "Some kind of divine intervention"?


    Authorities think she rolled down a hill to the drain. It took three firefighters to get her out. She had a minor injury.
    "There had to be some kind of divine intervention for her to end up being OK," Moore told the affiliate.
    The child was taken to a hospital along with four other people in the car. All have been released except for the driver who is still recovering.
    "So many times, we go out and things aren't OK...and just during the holidays here to have a positive just feels good," fellow rescuer Texarkana Fire Capt. Charlie Smith said.
    Police confirmed to KSLA the child was not properly restrained in the car seat at the time of the accident and that the car seat was also not properly installed, but no citation was issued.
    The driver of the truck was cited for an improper and unsafe lane change.

    I read about this last night. Amazing. I can't believe she was fine, just a few scratches.

    How horrifying for the parents though. Even though they didn't buckle her up properly.

    Omg, so many people don't get car seat safety. My poor husband has been lectured so many times.

    Thank God this little girl is safe!!

    Remember the baby who was ripped away by a tornado years ago and then found by a cop, unharmed except for some bruises, sitting in a tree miles away from his home? This kind of reminds me of that, well, the part that the babies both could have died so easily yet got away with almost no injuries.

    Many times a car seat itself isn't installed properly.
