Family searching for mystery woman who comforted little boy after fiery crash
The woman named "Laura" held and sang to the eight-year-old boy on the side of I-264 on Friday.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The family of a little boy who survived a fiery crash on the Shawnee Expressway wants to thank a woman who stopped to help.
Eight-year-old Dylan and his dad, Bob, were in a chain reaction crash involving three cars and a semi on Friday afternoon on I-264 near River Park Drive. Their Pontiac was pushed under a semi. Another car caught fire, and two people inside were killed. Thankfully, the boy and his father survived.
The stranger who stopped at the crash comforted Dylan by singing songs, holding him and shielding him from the response to the crash.
A photo is being shared on social media of the woman with brown curly hair they only know as "Laura." You can't really see the boy in the photo, but you can tell she is embracing and protecting him.
A friend of the family says they want to find "Laura" and thank her for "being compassionate and going above and beyond to bring comfort to Dylan. To let her know she made a tragic situation a little bit better for Dylan."
If you know who "Laura" is, please email Lisa.firstname.lastname@example.org.
They also say an EMT at the scene played the "Minions" movie on her phone that helped calm the boy down, as well.
