They're calling this 4-year-old boy's survival a miracle. And it's all because a witness of a terrible accident DIDN'T move.
Mom Brandy Gonzalez was driving with her young son Killian to Nevada from Idaho when suddenly, ice caused their car to skid and crash into another car. The resulting accident was devastating.
Meanwhile, Leah Woodward and her police officer husband were driving by and happened upon the accident. They both rushed to the site of the crash to see if there were any survivors, and she spotted them.
Leah immediately realized the severity of Killian's situation and sat up the seemingly lifeless preschooler, keeping his head still for more than half an hour.
"I'm trying to stay calm but inside I'm panicking," Leah said. "And I'm thinking 'I don't know what I'm doing.' And it was the worst feeling I've ever had to not know how to help."
Little did she know, this quick thinking ultimately rescued him.
As it turned out, Killian was left internally decapitated by the crash, a rare injury that completely separated his skull from his spine. Leah keeping his head still for so long was what allowed him to live after an injury that has a less than 1 percent survival rate.
Now, both Killian and his mother are expected to make a full recovery. And his mom could not be more grateful for Leah stepping in to be the Good Samaritan that day.
"She saved my baby," Brandy said. "She gave me him back."
