A toddler was completely lost and in dire danger with only her stroller and stuffed animal to keep her company. Luckily for this vulnerable little girl, a bus driver was determined to rescue her!
Kelvin White was praised as a hero because he saved a toddler’s life when she nearly ran into traffic. This 2-year-old girl, who was just two years old, survived thanks to White’s heroic actions. White told the story, stating that the young girl was walking in an opposite direction to the traffic and that he used his vest as a means of moving the traffic away from him.
On July 17, 2021, the Virginia-based bus driver came to a halt while on route when he saw the toddler in the middle of oncoming traffic. Instead of doing nothing, he chose to get out of the bus and assist the little girl.
“That’s the first time I had a child that I’ve had to pull out of the street.”
The driver said that she was walking with a stuffed animal and a stroller. He went on a mission with another man to locate the parents. The police finally intervened and reunited the little girl with her mother.
The public has shown a substantial positive response to this Good Samaritan’s selfless actions. One individual commended him on breaking the status quo; instead of recording the incident to share online, he actually did something to help.
Many of the comments could not get enough of her enthusiasm.
The public wasn’t the only ones impressed. Alex Brink, this busman’s supervisor and HRT operations manager, revealed that HRT would be gifting their humanitarian worker with a White pair of Beats headphones.
Bus drivers appear to have the biggest hearts, with another one, Irean Ivic, from Milwaukee rescuing a mere 19-month-old toddler wandering barefoot through the streets in 2019.
Ivic ran out of the bus and quickly picked up the little girl as they walked into an intersection, taking her to the bus. One passenger covered the toddler with her coat, as she was freezing to death.
It is believed that the 19-month-old went missing following a mental-health crisis endured by her mother. The little girl was reunited at the end with her father.
Both these kids were under 5 years old, and there are many safety requirements for this age group when it comes to the road. One is always to have an open dialogue with them about the road and its dangers.
It is best to do this while you are actually doing it. For example, when parents are about to cross a road, they should hold their hand and explain its importance and how they choose to cross, such as looking both ways safely.
Many children imitate the actions of adults around them, as is common knowledge. Their guardians or parents should ensure that their children are wearing their seatbelts and crossing roads safely.
One doesn’t need to be saving toddlers off the streets to make a difference in the world. Sometimes a positive attitude and a little bit of advice can make a big difference.
Amazon delivery woman Kelsey embodied this energy. While singing and exuding bright energy, she approached the new homeowner’s home while singing.
The 28-year old was captured on the doorbell camera, and the video was shared on TikTok where many of the comments loved her infectious energy. It’s no surprise that people who do good in the world tend to be more spirited than others.
