A grateful mother is calling Jessica Bauer an “angel from above.” And that’s because the heroic neighbor wasted no time diving into a lake to save the woman’s 4-year-old child from drowning!
The world is a dark and dangerous place, especially for young children. As every parent knows, young children must be under nearly constant surveillance. Every item is a potential choking hazard to a young child as everything ends up in a kid's mouth.
In addition to choking, children can put themselves in even further danger, which two people in Michigan learned. A video posted on YouTube, shows one woman, Jessica Bauer, jumping into a lake without any hesitation to rescue a 4-year-old boy with autism.
Neighbor Dives Into Lake To Save 4-Year-Old
The short begins with a close-up shot of the little guy running toward the body of water. Viewers can then see the child walk right into the lake. Seconds later, the 4-year-old's grandmother and Jessica Bauer, a neighbor, walk out into the backyard.
The grandmother, who was babysitting, screams in utter fear and panic, "He's in the water!"
Jessica, after spotting the young man, immediately runs toward the water, ditches her phone, and then hops right into the lake. She didn't give it a second thought.
Jessica Bauer saved the young man's life!
Following the rescue, Jessica recalled the horrifying situation and her heroic actions.
"All I can do is doggy paddle," Jessica said.
He added that despite her limited swimming ability, she "really did not think much into it."
The mother of the 4-year-old, understandably, is forever grateful for Jessica's quick-thinking and selfless actions. She even referred to Jessica Bauer as a heavenly being.
"She's literally an angel from above, especially for being at the right place at the right time," the 4-year-old's mother said.
Jessica, who is also a mother of a 3-year-old, is the definition of a hero. She risked her own life and safety to rescue someone from a dangerous, likely deadly situation.
