We love the fact that Good Samaritan news is coming in fast and furious these days, and this latest case of someone helping out a complete stranger will give you chills.
According to Charlotte’s NBC News affiliate WCNC, Jill Fowler was driving on the highway when she realized her two-year-old daughter, Mia, was having an allergic reaction from a cookie she ate earlier at a friend’s house. Like so many kids, Mia is allergic to nuts.
Eight months pregnant with her second child and realizing that her daughter was having trouble breathing, Jill stopped her car on the interstate right in the middle of rush hour traffic.
“I was frantic, Mia was in a lot of distress at that point and things were getting worse,” Jill told WCNC.
“Somebody rolled down their window and said, do you need help? I was like yes, please! And somebody else said 'I'll call 911',” Jill went on to explain.
The woman pulled her car right in front of Jill’s and jumped out to offer her assistance, and ended up administering the EpiPen to Mia.
“I read the directions out loud to her, I held Mia down, at that point she was a disaster and we did it again, we counted out loud together and we worked as a team,” Jill said.
In all the chaos, Jill never got the woman’s contact information and is looking for her, to send her a message of sincere gratitude.
“Thank you,” adorable Mia says by way of a message to the good Samaritan.
Mia’s mom believes the woman was driving a gray Mini Cooper and may have a teenage son. If you can help reunite Jill with this gracious woman, contact NBC Charlotte reporter Michelle Boudin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
