Photo Of Firefighter Comforting Baby Girl Until She Falls Asleep Following Car Crash Melts Hearts
Captain Chris Blazek was tired after having handled a house fire, and he was taking a shower when his crew was called to the scene of the car accident. And when the man arrived, he made everything possible to ensure victims were safe.
The accident involved a pregnant woman and her three young children. While older daughters were fine, the mother and her youngest kid were hysterical. The mom suffered back and abdominal pain. To make sure the child was okay, the firefighter rushed to the car, took her out, and did a physical exam. What happened next melted the crew’s hearts.
The screaming girl laid her head on the captain’s shoulder and calmed down. This is how Blazek described it in a heartwarming Facebook post devoted to the accident:
I decided that my guys had the scene under control, so I decided to sit and take a break with my new friend. She immediately fell asleep in my arms.
The man stayed with the kids before their family members arrived at the scene. As he added:
It’s moments like this that I am reminded, this is why I do the job.
A fellow firefighter took a sweet picture of the captain with the girl that immediately went viral. The post now has more than 18 thousand likes and a thousand comments, including a touching ‘thank you’ message from the mom involved in the accident.
Other people also took to Facebook to shower the firefighter and his crew for their excellent service and compassion.
Thank you for saving lives and just being great humans!
