Boxer 'Sugar' Shane Mosley Rescued A Baby From A Crash On The 405
Former three-division world champion boxer 'Sugar' Shane Mosley was driving on the 405 freeway with his girlfriend on Sunday when they narrowly avoided a 4-car pile-up. They stuck around, and found that a baby in one of the cars was trapped and bleeding.
In an interview with CBS L.A., Mosley said, "You don't know if the car's going to catch fire, then seeing there's a baby in there."
According to Mosley, the father of the baby was so dazed that he was unable to unlock the back door, where the baby was. "I took him out of the carseat, and the baby still was crying, was bleeding from the mouth, the neck, it was bruised," he said.
Mosley and his girlfriend had meanwhile called 9-1-1 and gotten the baby out of the car themselves and held him until paramedics arrived on the scene. They also got the baby bag out of the car, and followed the ambulance to the hospital. Along the way, Mosley's girlfriend called the driver's wife, who is 7-months pregnant with another child.
Mosley also tweeted his reactions after the rescue, complete with appropriate emojis of course.
