Georgia man saves baby crawling toward highway

MADISON COUNTY, Ga. — Bryant Collins was driving down the highway when he saw a baby crawling through the woods last Friday. She nearly reached the road. Collins stopped and picked up the baby girl. According to WXIA, Bryant stayed with her for two hours.

“The baby started crying,” Collins said, “so I turned my phone on and let her listen to some gospel music, and she calmed right down.”

Collins called police, who later located the child’s father and arrested him. The child’s mother may also be arrested.

According to WXIA the little girl crawled about 300 yards from home through the woods and suffered only minor injuries.

“Everything was pretty much superficial that we saw,” Madison County Sheriff Kip Thomas said. “Honestly that’s almost a miracle: that a 15-month-old can go that far from her house, into the woods, fall down an embankment, wind up near a major highway, and really not get hurt that bad.”

    Dang, Drew, seems my earlier comment got lost in the suffel? The 7 posts ahead of me did not address the problem??? Where was the mother, the sitter? Did DHR get into play? Seems to me it took the child a long time to crawl 300 yards?
