This week, we spotlight an incredible story of quick-thinking that saved a little girl’s life.
Scott Demers was working on a sprinkler system when he saw a car plow through a home at full speed just a few doors down. He immediately ran to the scene. When Scott got there, he said that it was chaos.
The owner of the home came running out, screaming, “He killed my little girl!” That’s when Scott saw five-year-old Giuliana in very bad shape and in desperate need of medical attention. He quickly took off his shirt and put it on her neck to stop the bleeding. When the paramedics arrived, they asked to see her neck, but Scott refused to take his hand way because he knew he had to keep pressure on it to slow the bleeding.
Giuliana was air flighted to Boston Hospital and the doctors say that Scott’s quick-thinking saved the girl’s life. She has a long road ahead of her, but she will recover. The driver of the car suffered no injuries but was arrested for driving under the influence.
Giuliana’s father said that he is grateful to Scott Demers for his quick action because he was too panicked and didn’t know what to do.
