baby in storm drain

A baby girl who was thrown 30 feet during a car crash was found safe inside a storm drain.

The accident happened on Friday around 7 pm on I-30 in Texarkana, Arkansas, KSLA reports.

8-month-old Bryce Hale was not secured in a baby seat when the car she was riding in was bumped by a truck and flipped.

The vehicle's passengers, who were unharmed, attempted to find the baby, but couldn't locate her.

Firefighters who arrived on the scene searched for the baby and eventually found her sitting inside a storm drain, waiting patiently to be rescued.

Firefighter Josh Moore said emergency responders heard sounds coming from a pile of hay. They removed the hay and found the storm drain.

"The baby at the time… was actually sitting down in the grate, sitting up and looking up at us waiting for us to pull her out. She wasn't screaming, she wasn't crying, was just sitting there waiting for us."

"I thought she was gone," Bryce's mother, Jakesia Colson, told KSLA News.

“I started running up and down the highway looking everywhere for her, calling her name,” she said. “I didn’t hear a baby crying, no baby screaming, nothing. I panicked... It was the worst 15 minutes of my life trying to look for her.”

Firefighters say it was a miracle Bryce survived the crash with just a scratch.

The truck driver will be cited for causing the accident.

    AR police have since confirmed that the car seat, which was found
    outside the vehicle when first responders arrived, was not properly
    installed and that the child was not properly restrained in the seat at
    the time of the crash. There were no citations related to the lack of
    proper child restraints, however.
    ---------
    There should have been citations.

    AT THE SAME TIME LAWRENCE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT THE HAIL HE WANTS...HE'S A LITTLE LOST

  • SpiceGirl

    Some good news for a change today. Soooo glad to hear she is safe and sound.

  • iWasteTime

    He wants to shake that "emo" tag he got from his friend.
    She wasn't as supportive as the bank teller but the bank teller wasn't holding it down though while he was unemployment.

  • puppylove

    Could have been they didn't know how to do it properly. I am not sure about everywhere, but in CA fire stations will show you how to properly secure the seat.

    I will assume since they bothered to have one they intended for her to be safe.

  • puppylove

    Now all I can think of is how did the baby get in the storm drain?????

  • iWasteTime

    you right about that.
    I wonder if next season we gonna see the "making of a phuck boi"

  • hi-liter

    Right, It's easy to be supportive and say nice things when you just met a person. The Chaseho was just trying to get in.

  • Low E. TUH!

    EXACTLY...HEREIN LIES THE ISSUE WITH MOST GUYS. "SHE WASN'T THERE FOR ME." ...THEN WHO WAS? SOMEBODY IS DOING SOMETHING FOR YOU TO CONTINUE TO HAVE SOMEWHERE TO EAT AND SLEEP WHILE YOU SEARCH FOR EMPLOYMENT! ...OOOH SORE SUBJECT.

  • YES I SAID IT…

    Ain't God good!?! Just look at him work....

  • Nonya Bizness

    The 18 wheeler is the one who hit the car with the 5 people in it, which is why he was cited. One person is still in the hospital. Most of those trucks drive over the speed limit and change lanes like they're cars, and cut you off like they're a car, making you slam on your brakes. I hate them. I try to understand they're needed, then they almost come in my lane and almost hit me, or cut me off, and I go back hating them.

  • Sucker Free

    Look at God ???

  • Full Monty

    Thank God!

  • puppylove

    If you are almost being hit, chances are they couldn't see you. For your safety, give them space.

  • Buttercup

    I did too...considering that they had to remove hay from over it to see her. I'm just going to say the baby crawled in there after she was ejected.

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    Maybe that was their intention however they could've been being reckless.They need to make sure it's right moving forward.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    thank god for watching over her

  • RaginB

    why wasn't she in a car seat tho?!

  • Incog-knee-gress

    If I am driving down the street and my baby is not in the seat correctly and a police officer notices then its a $200 ticket. This beautiful baby almost wasnt able to grow up. I think at least a ticket shoulda been issued. God bless the baby being okay.

  • puppylove

    Hopefully the police do a followup with them.

  • iWasteTime

    right?! but she wasn't as she could have been if she wasn't worried, stress and sweating Daniel ... ugh!

  • Yoni

    Bless her beautiful heart.

  • puppylove

    Cops are a bit lenient around the holidays. Probably considered the fact that the baby almost died punishment enough. They may not be able to afford that ticket, which could lead to jail time if not paid.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    My sister does this. Just puts her kid in the seat and drives around. And her bipolar self STAYS in a fender bender. I have told her if I see her doing it again I am PERSONALLY calling the cops on her.

  • iWasteTime

    I live in Jersey.
    I drove to my towns Police station and had them put it in, take it out, put the front facing in and tried for the booster but the cop told me to get on ... lol!

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    Commonly..many people do not buckle there child in their seats correctly(71% or something like that). they leave too much play in between the straps. A baby who is limber anyway can easily slip through the straps in an impact if the shoulder straps aren't tight. I read

  • IntroSpective

    God is real....

  • acire

    They need to be cited for not securing that baby properly. They ain't watch Why Did I Get Married?!

  • acire

    Can they afford proper child restraints versus a ticket? Not bashing your comment, but little choices like the one her Mama made can have lifelong consequences.

  • acire

    Damn skippy. Ain't nobody got to tell me how valuable my blessings are. Maybe it's cause I'm pregnant that I'm all sensitive to stuff involving kids. Let me keep scrolling!

  • Allihave2say

    Is this an open post?! She needs her ass kicked. No car seat. Ross sells them for like $12-$50. Some police and fire departments give them away. At worst you can buy one from a thrift store. Not the best idea ok because you don't know the history of the car seat,

  • Alexis Carson

  • Alexis Carson

    What a blessing. I hope those firefighters teaches her mother how to properly sit their child in that car seat.

  • 6uessimh8tn

    So you go get there address and mail them phucking one ok. Everyone a phucking judge to someone else and a lawyer to their own BS. Let's thank heavens the baby is ok and hopefully the parents learnt to be more cautious as for you living in the glass house go buy some windex ok. And spare me the bs what you would have done in their situation ok foh

  • SaltineCrackers

    Come through Jesus!

  • JENNYJONES1

    I'M SURPRISED THE MOTHER WASN'T TICKETED FOR NOT HAVING HER BUCKLED AND HER SEAT PROPERLY INSTALLED IN THE CAR. PEOPLE KILL ME TAKING THAT ISH AS A JOKE OR SOMETHING THEY CAN'T FIND TIME TO DO. AND I HAVE SEEN PEOPLE RIDE SHARING WITH SMALL KIDS OR BABIES BUT NO TYPE OF SEATS AS IF NO ACCIDENT CAN HAPPEN WHILE IN LYFT OR UBER. THE DRIVERS AND MOTHERS ARE ALL TRIPPING PUTTING THOSE KID'S LIFE AT RISK AND BREAKING THE LAW. SMH!!!........JENNY JONES!!!

  • Allihave2say

    Let me tell you something, Saint. I have handed out free car seats to parents who don't have em. That's how I know how to get them for a reasonable price. I host regularly events in my daycare to educate the community on car seat benefits and safety. I also receive signed donations from local Sheriff's offices that give the car seats to the parents to whom I've given their signed brochure.

    I know what the fuhk I'd do in that situation because my two grown children made into their adult lives without ever being thrown out the muthafuhkn car. You know why, because I always had them in a car seat and when they were old enough and the right size they still wore seat belts and were allowed in the front seat only when appropriate for that ride.

    Yes we are all thankful this beautiful baby made. However, this was an act of senseless irresponsibility on the part of all the adults. They are VERY lucky they weren't charged with child endangerment and VERY VERT blessed that she is well.

    Are you one of them? Are you one of the lazy irresponsible adults who could have caused this baby to lose her life. Put the rocks down and pick up some eyeglasses and see the danger ahead fool.

  • 6uessimh8tn

    This isnt about me being a saint bish!!Miss me with the BS of what you gave someone. You stated the parents needed the a$$ whip. Only person need they a$$ whipped is you!! Instead of judging how about just thanking God their carelessness did not make them lose a child who gives a damn how many car seat you gave out go give them one!!! How many times you need your a$$ whipped for the mistakes you made while being a human? Yeah yeah I'm sure you going to say when it comes to your child you would know better there are many grieving parents that wish they would've thought otherwise. A mistake can happen very quick OK . we all make mistakes that we will regret some big some small think twice before judging someone, go give back to your community mother Theresa ???Or should I call you Judge Joe Brown foh ???? no response for you perfect ass bish

  • Allihave2say

    I see you iz stupid minded and very bothered by my words. You sound really angry, bitter, and mostly jealous of my accomplishments. Thanks for the reference to Mother Theresa, the wonderful Saint she was - I see you recognize my greatness. Let me show you how much I really care about you, your feelings, your thoughts, your words, your existence and your impending death...Wait for it....
