A South Carolina police officer is being hailed as a hero after he saved the life of a two-year-old girl who fell out of a moving car onto Interstate 26. Police Corporal Jason Marzan, a four-year veteran with the North Charleston Police and a retired Army serviceman, was nearby when he received the call about the incident last Tuesday morning and raced to the scene.
Marzan found the toddler lying on the roadway and quickly worked to apply a tourniquet to control the bleeding from the child's severed arm. Paramedics arrived moments later and rushed the toddler to an area hospital where doctors were able to surgically reattach her arm. A few days after the incident, she’s already regaining sensation in her fingers.
A father of six himself, Marzan expressed gratitude for the hospital staff's remarkable work and emphasized that not every police call has such a positive outcome. He says that helping save a child's life in this way is one of the most rewarding aspects of his job, and it has inspired him to continue serving as a police officer.
