Seeing a youngster out in the freezing weather wearing just an onesie and toting a laptop was surprising for Tony Taylor as he drove through his neighbourhood.
On the 17th of February, she was discovered lost and shivering in the snow in Chicago’s Englewood neighbourhood in subzero conditions.
Tony claimed he was driving with his 5-year-old daughter as they passed the youngster, and the girl yelled out to him, “Daddy, look at the little girl.”
He abruptly pulled over and walked up to the sobbing girl.
Tony told the press, “She was simply wearing an onesie, her feet were really chilly, and she was holding a laptop.” ‘I removed my outerwear, lifted her up, and dialled 911,’ he said.
Tony then went live on Facebook in an effort to locate her family, asking viewers, “Does anybody recognize this young child right here?”
A short while later, police came and rushed the girl to the emergency room. When asked by the police, she said she decided to go alone.
Tony told ABC7 Chicago, “She told me, ‘I don’t want to go home to my mother and daddy.'”
As he remembered it, “As I put her in the truck,” he cried a little. She looked me square in the face and said, “Mr. Sir, I love you,” to which I replied, “I love you too.”
Stephanie Coleman, the alderman of Chicago’s 16th ward, praised Tony for his bravery, stating that most people underestimate the chill of winter.
People worldwide look up to you and think you’re an angel, not just in Englewood. She then said to Tony, “You saved a baby’s life.”
The girl probably travelled almost a mile without any help and without shoes.
Who didn’t see her strolling by? Tony remarked, “I’m sorry, but I just don’t get it. It’s not like she was gone for five minutes when I grabbed her foot. Suppose you know what I mean. Her toes looked like icicles. She was inconsolable; her sobs went on and on.
Police say they have discovered the girl’s parents and that she is staying with relatives temporarily while they continue their investigation.
Everyone should sing his praises, but this guy is exceptional. What may have happened to this youngster if they had been outdoors in the frigid temps any longer is terrifying to consider.
