We’ve shared some amazing stories of heroes rescuing helpless children from death. Remember the time a police officer saved a toddler from choking and his dashcam captured the entire rescue? How about the time a cop used “reverse CPR” to save a 2-month-old in the nick of time?

This story is– once again– about a hero saving a child’s life, this time an 8-month-old baby. But in this story, the hero is the the baby’s mother, and the rescue comes at a great price.

Jennifer Duncan, age 23, was driving on the highway in Waco, Texas when she got in a fender-bender. She pulled her car over, got her 8-month-old son, Daniel, out of his car seat, and stood to the side– in what should have been a safe spot– to wait for first responders. That’s when another vehicle crashed into one of the parked cars, sending the car straight at Jennifer and Daniel. The car smashed into the mother and son, launching them off the bridge.

As Jennifer and Daniel flew through the air– towards the asphalt 30 feet below– Jennifer wrapped her body around her son, creating a human cocoon, shielding his tiny body from the impending impact.


“My main concern was keeping him safe, making sure he was going to be okay,” said Jennifer. “I just took like one second and– seeing that we were falling– I just tried to grab as tight as I can to him.”

Because of the human shield Jennifer provided with her body, Daniel not only survived the fall, he survived without injury. According to the GoFundMe page, “Jennifer’s Miracle,” baby Daniel had only a scratch: “Literally, just a scratch.”

But, according to the page, “Jennifer’s heroic act for her son did not go without great personal sacrifice to her own well-being.”


Jennifer shattered her pelvis, broke 9 bones in her back, fractured her legs, fractured her ribs, had spleen injuries, internal injuries, and even had to have a leg amputated.

She spent 2 months in the hospital and 1 month in rehab. Jennifer underwent 14 surgeries in 7 months.

Now Jennifer says the hardest part of recovery was not being able to pick up Daniel, but her desire to hold her son again was the very thing that kept her going.


Hear Jennifer tell her amazing story of sacrifice and love in the video below.
