Girl, 9, Gets Hit by Truck, Saves Her Little Sister's Life

Anaiah and her 5-year-old sister, Camry, were crossing the street to catch the bus for school when the accident happened, ABC affiliate WSBTV in Madison, Ga., reports.

"I love her more than anything," Anaiah told the station from her Atlanta hospital room. "I pushed my sister out of the way so she wouldn't get hit."

Morning Express reports Anaiah nearly died from her injuries, which included two broken legs -- the left leg was amputated, a broken neck and spleen damage. She also lost a kidney.

Anaiah tells WSBTV it was raining that day, that she looked both ways and thought they were clear to enter the street.

"I saw the truck and I was like, 'No!' " Andrea Taylor, the girls' mother who was watching from her porch, tells WSBTV. "I seen my daughter kinda snatch my 5-year-old back, and if it wasn't for that, my 5-year-old would have ... I don't think she would have made it."

The truck driver was not charged in the incident, according to the network.

WSBTV reports Anaiah is scheduled to be released today, and police cars and fire trucks from Madison will provide an escort home where it will be Anaiah Rucker Day.

....

"I thought she was too young," she tells the network. "She's my sister. I love her."

This story is heart-wrenching to me on several levels.

1) This little girl's love and fierce protection of her younger sister touches my soul.

2) The question that comes to my mind is "Why didn't this mother walk a 9 y/o and a 5 y/o ACROSS THE STREET to the bus stop?!"
:bam:

She watched them from THE PORCH. :cool:


3) This little girl's love and fierce protection of her younger sister makes me think of the "Parentified Child."----- Was this a common occurrence that Anaiah was put in charge of Camry?----that Anaiah feels "responsible" for her little sister? ---that SHE must care for Camry, protect Camry, etc?...

....and after all those "Hero of the day," I wonder if anyone ever asked the mother why she didn't walk her children across the street to the bus stop?

If she doesn't work or doesn't leave for work until later in the morning, then why was it not a regular morning routine that she walked them across the street?

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
