NORTH CHARLESTON, SC – A toddler was hurt when she fell from a moving vehicle on I-26 EB near University Blvd on October 10, according to WCBD.
An airman from Shaw Air Force Base stopped behind the vehicle to block traffic and talked with the 2-year-old child until emergency crews arrived.
Officer Pfc. Jason Marzan responded to the scene after receiving a call about a toddler who fell from a car and was bleeding heavily.
The toddler was alert and conscious when Officer Marzan arrived at the scene. He found that the toddler’s right arm was cut just above the elbow and applied a tourniquet to help control the bleeding.
Rescue crews transported the toddler to an area hospital. The doctors were able to reattach the toddler’s arm.
Officer Marzan was honored Monday for saving the child’s life.
