Former world champion boxer 'Sugar' Shane Mosley rescues toddler from freeway pile-up
Former world champion boxer "Sugar" Shane Mosley says he saved a toddler from a four-car pile-up on the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles.
The accident unfolded right in front of him, he told KCAL-TV, and he stopped to help. "You don't know if the car is going to catch fire, what's going to happen, then seeing there's a baby in there," he said.
The toddler was in his car seat, screaming and bleeding, Mosley told the station. The driver, and the baby's father, was so shook up he couldn't unlock the door to get his child out, Mosley said.
Mosley and his girlfriend called 911 and managed to get the baby. "The baby was crying and bleeding, his neck was bruised," Mosley told the station.
He and his girlfriend grabbed the baby bag in the car and followed paramedics to the hospital, he said.
There, they met the baby's mother, who is seven months pregnant, he said. The toddler and his father turned out to be fine.
The dad "was crying and saying, 'you guys are like an angel and thank you for helping me. And being there for me and protecting my son,''' Mosley told the station.
He gave the family a pair of tickets to his May 28 fight against David Avanesyan in Arizona, he said.
