This week the astonishing story of a women who is now being called a hero surfaced; the event originally took place in May but for personal reasons the people involved did not want the story to become big news. One day late last month 25 year old Jennifer Anton was walking down the street with the girl she was caring for in a stroller when she made a quick decision that saved the girl’s life.
Anton reportedly saw an out of control pickup truck speeding towards her and the stroller and immediately pushed the stroller as hard as she could. At the time she was unaware of how much of a difference this made but since then police have confirmed that this likely saved the girl’s life. The truck proceeded on it’s out of control path directly into Anton but it barely missed the stroller and child.
Prosecutors say the truck’s driver is facing various counts of drinking while driving as well as numerous other reckless charges. Anton, the nanny, suffered from numerous injuries including broken bones but she has been recovering well; all the while she claims that she was simply doing the right thing. Anton truly is a real life hero for her actions that have been credited for saving the young girl’s life that day. The girl’s father spoke out today as well publicly issuing his thanks to Anton for her incredible bravery, saying that he would forever be in debt to her for saving his daughter.
