A man who risked his life to save an 18-month-old girl from drowning.


On a bridge in Ocean City, Maryland, Jonathan Bauer saw a multivehicle collision and got out of his car to see if he could help.

But then he saw one of the vehicles, a pickup truck hanging precariously over the guardrail.

When he looked down into the bay, he saw a car seat from the truck floating on the surface.

About six-feet from the car seat, a toddler in grave danger, was floating on her back, and then she rolled over face down in the water, and began to sink.

Jonathan leaped from the bridge into the chilly water about 20-feet below to rescue her.

"I popped up, swam over to the girl, lifted her out of the water and looked at her," he later said.

"Her mouth was open; her eyes were semi-open. I put her against my shoulder very high and aggressively pat her on the back."

"And within seconds, she spit up a bunch of water." he recalled.

Just then, a pontoon boat arrived to help.

They lifted Jonathan and the toddler from the water and took them to shore, where paramedics awaited them.

The toddler was airlifted to Johns Hopkins Children's Center hospital. She is making a full recovery.

Jonathan, not seeking attention, quietly walked away. But the community wanted to express its appreciation.

Jonathan was given an award ceremony, and with his family present, and the crowd cheering, humbly accepted a commendation for saving this child.

But to him what mattered was that this adorable little girl in a tiny pink dress had survived.
