The Fourth of July typically brings with it some iffy traffic. More people than ever are using the roads to travel to parades, events, and fireworks displays, and the increased congestion frequently results in an increase in accidents.
However, a guy in Florida claims that on that particular morning, at the intersection of State Road 100 and John Anderson Boulevard in Flagler County, God placed him in the ideal circumstance.
While traveling through the region, just north of Daytona Beach, Wisguere Dormevil saw an upside-down Jeep. There was debris all everywhere.
He promptly dialed 911, then went outside to see what he could do. He received devastating news from someone.
“He’s like, ‘There’s a baby in there, there’s a baby’, and after that, I look down and saw the baby sticking out,” Dormevil stated.
Dormevil did not waste time. He approached the Jeep and raised it so that other people could rescue the young child from the rubble.
“I held it up and then I gave another boost of push and then the Jeep kinda lift up and then the car seat and the baby was just sticking out,” he stated.
Although it was a horrible tragedy, first responders arrived quickly to provide medical care and transport the victims to the hospital.
“Multiple units from Flagler Beach and Flagler County Rescue are on scene of a severe crash at SR.100/ John Anderson Blvd.,” the Flagler Beach Fire Department stated.
“The first arriving unit on scene upgraded the incident to a level 1 mass casualty incident. A trauma alert was called and 3 adults and 1 pediatrician were transported to Halifax Medical Center. The eastbound lane of SR100 is currently shut down. Please avoid the area.”
On his own page, Dormevil also made a post about the incident, thanking God for the timing.
“This morning God put me in the right place at the right time,” he posted. “I was able to help get this baby from under this jeep, car seat was crushed and the baby was stuck in between the car we were able to push the car over just enough to pull the baby out.”
“From what it looks like the passenger was ejected from the car several people were injured … hopefully everyone’s alright.”
On the fire department’s website, a lady who claimed to know the victims said that although they had suffered severe injuries, they were at least stable.
“I just wanted to comment because there are so many beautiful comments sending prayers and love and people wanting to know the outcome,” she wrote. “This is my son’s best friend and his baby and I just wanted you guys to know they are all stable at this moment thanks to Jesus. There are a lot of complications as we all know how tragic this was but keep sending in those prayers because God is working miracles.”
