Two friends from Minooka, Illinois, 16-year-old Hunter Hasenjaeger and 17-year-old Collin Barry, were heading home just after midnight when they saw a horrifying scene on the road.
At first, the teens saw a Chrysler 300. The front of the car was totaled on the driver’s side. Then, they heard the sound of a baby screaming and crying at the top of her lungs.
Hunter and Collin then saw 27-year-old Alexis Danley, who was deceased… and six months pregnant when she died.
What the teens didn’t know at the time was the man who struck and killed Alexis would be arrested for driving under the influence.
Alexis’ hand was reaching back to grab the baby seat, where her 1-year-old daughter was sitting, completely terrified.
Hunter instantly felt a connection to the helpless little girl. Since the police had not yet arrived, the teenage boys knew they had to do something — and they began working together to pull the child to safety.
These two young men are heroes! Please pray for this little baby and these boys that rescued her. She will now have to grow up without a mother because to a drunk driver so please keep her in your prayers.
