Baby Thrown From Rolling Car Found Alive Inside Storm Drain

On Friday night, a truck reportedly sideswiped a vehicle on Interstate 30 in Texarkana, Arkansas, which led to the infant's ejection.

She lifted her hands up and three firefighters pulled her out of the storm drain.

An Arkansas 8-month-old infant thrown about 30 feet from her auto during a crash was found completely unharmed three feet beneath a drainage grate.

Texarkana, Arkansas, firefighters say it is a miracle that an infant girl survived a auto crash that threw her from the vehicle and left responders searching the scene for her body. They also said they have not given any citations to the family related to the lack of proper child restraints.

Firefighter Josh Moore said: 'There had to be some kind of divine intervention for her to end up being okay'. "It took 3 of us to work her around the grate and get her back up through", Captain Charlie Smith said. Indeed, there was the baby, inside the drain, waiting for these doddering adults to quit screwing around and pick her up. Police said the Altima's driver, 42-year-old Trina Johnson, sustained "significant injuries" after she stepped out of the auto after the crash and was hit by a passing vehicle. She was immediately check for injuries by EMTs on scene and shockingly they only found a scratch on her forehead. The infant and four others in the auto were taken to the hospital.

The driver of an 18-wheeler that is believed to have clipped the family's auto and causing the crash is being cited for an improper and unsafe lane change.

Police said the child's vehicle seat wasn't installed correctly, but authorities didn't issue the family citations. "During the holidays, to have a positive [thing happen] just feels good".
