In the midst of all the senseless lives lost over the last couple of days a woman by the name of Shanta Jordan decided that not another life was being snatched on her watch.
Jordan jumped in front of a vehicle which was about to strike a child absorbing most of the impact and possibly saving the child’s life.
The woman is being hailed a hero and will be honored by city officials. Both Jordan and the child suffered injuries but were said to be recovering at the hospital.
The driver of the vehicle was charged with reckless driving.
