A 15-month-old baby had the experience of a lifetime when his father wasn’t paying attention. The baby, who crawled through 300 yards of a heavy wooded area, fell down an embankment and started crawling near a highway and then this.

The entire incident happened in Madison County, Ga. on highway #72. A man on the job as an auto repairman got the surprise of a lifetime when he saw the young baby nearing the edge of the highway.

Bryant Collins scooped up the baby, holding her in his arms. “I just stopped and, when I got out, there was a baby….. almost in the highway.”

The baby, whose name is being withheld due to her age, crawled through the woods and almost onto the highway before Collins found her.

Collins is being hailed a hero in spite of him being an ex-convict, serving 10 years of his life for manufacturing cocaine. Collin said of his past “When I was in prison, I made a very conscientious effort to change, and I did.”

Collins acted immediately and took the baby into his arms. The baby sat crying as he took her to safety, so he did what many parents do, he played her gospel music on his smart-phone. Collins said the baby “calmed right down.”

Spot on. If no one else did, that's enough.

What bothered me was that his name was Bryant Collins, and the uniform said Collins Automotive. Does he have his own business ..??

If so, the news article seemed rather quick to list him only as an auto maintenance person .. instead of a business owner.

That bugs me.

Thanks for pointing this out. Not sure why the media would that, but it is just wrong.

1. Very cute baby.

2. It's common for very young children to go roaming, but I don;t think I've ever heard of one this young before.

3. Why are they still out on the highway?

4. How did he "manufacture cocaine"? Was someone growing coca leaves in Georgia?

The headline made me think she was one of the army of babies crawling through the desert toward the border. /S

A moron wrote this article.

“A 15-month-old baby had the experience of a lifetime when his father...”

The baby is female.

What are they teaching in journalism school these days? Anything?

If the word processor doesn’t catch it, it’s “good to go”

My 9th baby had red poodle curls, just like that.

She just heard that no-talent hacks can start off as a news reporter at $600,000/yr, so she decided to get out of dodge and head for the big show. She figured that if NTHs can make that kind of money, think what she could make...

To top it off I am not sure why they felt they had to bring up his criminal history- it had nothing to do with the story.

I noticed the gender mix-up, too, but I thought that perhaps the “journalist” did not want to be accused of bias. The baby may be too young to speak about her preferred sex identification.

But, seriously, that baby’s guardian angel was looking out for her. God bless Mr. Collins.

A baby that age would have needed a great deal of time to travel that distance. Dad forgot about her for a long time.

300 yards is a long way for a baby to crawl in even the best conditions.

I think there is more to this story.

They say no good deed goes unpunished. I guess this article is his punishment.
