By Romance Meets Life on June 17, 2014
Bryant Collins was driving on a Georgia highway when he caught a glimpse of something crawling on the grass, next to the busy highway that looked like a baby. Bryant Collins pulled over, carried the baby and then called 911.Turns out the small child had crawled out of her home about 300 yards away. She went through the woods, down a small embankment — and might have continued into the highway were it not for Collins.Emergency crews arrived and police arrested the child's father, Timothy Pickens, and will likely arrest the child's mother as well.Thankfully, the child was not hurt, according to Madison County sheriff Kip Thomas."Everything was pretty much superficial that we saw," Thomas said, "Honestly that's almost a miracle: that a 15-month-old can go that far from her house, into the woods, fall down an embankment, wind up near a major highway, and really not get hurt that bad."And Bryant Collins? . . .
