Connecticut Woman Shields a Child from an Oncoming car



A surveillance camera caught the heroic act of Shanta Jordan from Connecticut who jumped in front of a vehicle in an effort to push a little boy (who she doesn’t know) out of the car’s path.

Reports say her body absorbed much of the impact, thereby saving the child’s life, though he was seriously injured.

If she did not step in, the child would be in direct contact with the motor vehicle against the wall and most likely, he would have perished,” Bridgeport Police Chief A.J. Perez said.

Watching the video, It’s hard to believe nobody was killed. Police are now singling out the heroic actions of Shanta Jordan.

First of all, I want to say ‘Thank you’ to this good person,” Perez said.

“She is a heroine, that’s what she is. She is a great person, and she is an asset to this community.” he added.

    Why do I feel she was shocked and was rather trying to escape. Doesn’t seem to me like she was trying to protect the kid but this is shocking and thank God they both survived.

      No problem Douglas, you see what you want to see because there is no way that you would have tried to save that child, it was only by the Grace of the Lord thy God that the Lady and the Child were saved,had it not been for the Lady the child would have died Douglas that’s actually a quote from the officials. People of the Lord God will put down their lives for their friends Douglas.

    She was running for her life. Thankfully the little boy was shielded in the process.

    Observe that she can see the car coming but the child can not. so if she wanted to run for her life she could just turn back not run forward. so next time observe well. she is a HERO

    When you run for your life you run “away” from the danger not “towards” it.
