Workers save toddler.
Four Dickson Electric System employees in Dickson, Tennessee, are being celebrated as heroes after stopping to help a family that was seriously injured in a March car accident, reports NewsChannel 5.com.
"We'd been in Kingston Springs and we were coming down Highway 70, and we came up on it [the accident]," said lineman Jesse Curtis. "It was a mother, the child, the young child, and then another teenage girl."
The men immediately noticed that the toddler was not breathing. Upon inspection, they discovered that she did not have a heartbeat.
"The little girl, her lips had done turned blue and everything, by the time we got her out of the vehicle," said Mike Pearson.
Two of the men immediately began to perform CPR on the child, while the others redirected traffic away from the scene.
"I mean, we hope everyone else would do the same thing," said Buddy Dotson, another lineman. "I was praying and praying and praying."
Fortunately, their efforts paid off. The child resumed her breathing by the time emergency responders arrived.
The family was airlifted to a nearby hospital to be treated for their injuries. Later, the family articulated their utmost gratitude to the four workers.
