Brave Nanny Risks Her Life By Saving 2-Year Old From Getting Hit By A Car

Caroline Maurer was taking 2-year-old Fox for a walk around a block from his home. She was babysitting him that day and when they were crossing an empty intersection, a car sped through headed straight for the toddler.

Caroline did the unthinkable by doing a selfless act. She sacrificed herself by jumping in the way.

Maurer was soon brought to the hospital and she suffered several fractured bones in her arms, hands, and wrists. Fox was luckily not hit by the car and suffered only minor bruises.

Because of the incident, Caroline has undergone a total of three surgeries and will start Physical therapy thereafter. Hospitalized for more than 2 weeks, she was unable to go to work or attend her classes at school.

Fox’s parents, Courtney Davis and Bill Wolkoff, started a YouCaring page to raise funds for the brave woman. They said that she may not fully regain the strength of her hands after the accident and wanted to help her in ways they can.

    Here, the sacrifice of life is honorable. For if I would not have children if I was not prepared to give my life for them IF NECESSARY. This is not a brave woman but a ‘ordinary loving mother’who really cares for the children she brings into this world.

    This is not a brave woman but a ‘caring mother’ for what parent would not give their life for their own children?
    This is one of the few incidents were ‘self-sacrifice’ is merited.
