Hero Jumps Into Action As Terrified Mom Screams ‘Please Save My Baby’ from Sinking Car

sinking car rescue

Aside from those working as emergency responders, few of us are called upon to act in life-or-death emergency situations, but 28-year-old Liam Stych recently jumped into action to save a mom and child from a sinking car.

Storm Henk's heavy rains and strong winds struck large areas of England and Wales at the start of 2024, damaging property, causing power outages, and disrupting traffic. When flood waters carried a car under a bridge in Hall Green, Birmingham, the roadworks engineer and traffic manager happened to be taking a stroll with his pregnant partner, Tia Draper.

Liam recalled the dramatic rescue, stating, "We were walking over a bridge, and I heard a woman screaming from inside a car. She was shouting, ‘Help me, help me, please save my baby; she’s in the back!'"

Flood waters had carried the car into the swollen river and trapped it under the bridge. With water rushing into the car, Liam smashed the rear passenger window and used ratchet straps to secure the car to the bridge and keep it from sinking any further.

He then hung from the side of the bridge and instructed the driver to roll down the car window and hand him the three-year-old girl. What a frightening moment that must have been for Mom! No doubt, it was scary for Liam as well. However, he acted without delay-demonstrating care not to put any additional weight onto the car and to quickly consider each move.

He grabbed the toddler and "hurled" her into Tia's arms. Tia, who was capturing the entire rescue on camera, immediately comforted the frightened little girl.

Liam is being called a "local hero" by West Midlands Police after rescuing the mother and child from the sinking car. But he is modest, saying, "I just acted on instinct." Perhaps so, but things might have gone much differently if not for Liam's brave actions.

While watching her partner navigate such a dangerous situation was probably nerve-racking for Tia, she is surely grateful to see that Liam is so calm in a crisis!
