Toddler Girl Thrown Off A Bridge Into The Ocean After A Car Accident And A Good Samaritan Jumped In To Save Her

Jonathan told Ava to make contact with a first responder when she saw one arrive on the scene because he was going in after the 2-year-old little girl.

Jonathan jumped off the bridge into the water below, which only happens to be about 4 or 5 feet deep.

He then was able to reach the little girl and save her from drowning.

“At approximately 2:47 pm Ocean City Communications Center dispatched Ocean City Fire and Police units to the Route 90 bridge for a vehicle crash with injuries,” the Ocean City Fire Department said in a statement.

“A Worcester County Fire Marshal quickly arrived on the scene and informed communications one vehicle was half over the guardrail, and multiple patients were injured.”

“A mass casualty incident was declared and the call was upgraded to a rescue response. During the collision, one pediatric patient was ejected from the car teetering over the guardrail and landed into the Assawoman Bay.”

“A Good Samaritan immediately jumped over the guardrail and into the bay, rescuing the infant.”

“Firefighters secured the vehicle with rescue tools, while paramedics treated multiple priority patients.”

“Seven patients were transported by ground to various hospitals while the pediatric patient was flown to John Hopkins Children’s Hospital.”

“Ocean City Police are currently investigating the cause of the accident, and Route 90 remains closed at Coastal Highway and 589.”
