Nanny saves 20-month-old girl from truck impact



One account of the event is here.

The little girl, Tyler, was in a stroller. As the drunk government worker drove the car into the crowd on the sidewalk, nanny Jennifer Anton shoved the stroller out of the way, and the truck hit the nanny, harming her pelvis, hips, and legs.

The government man was on duty, driving a truck for the city, and his blood-alcohol level was .18% (more than twice the level of intoxication for which one can be arrested). A bottle of liquor was on the seat of the truck next to him.

The nanny risked her own life and took the impact, but made sure the little girl was safe. As the medical people were preparing to take the nanny to the hospital, she urged them to use her cell phone to call the mother to let her know the situation.

She should be in line for a bit of compensation. But I thought you were going to say the medics asked for her insurance and she didn't have any so they took the government man to hospital instead.

In the US, many nannies are not supplied with health insurance by their employers. I am thinking that, in this case, the parents will pay the hospital bills out of gratitude. In the US, nannies are more often hired by wealthier people, while people who are less wealthy drop their children off at day-care facilities which are less expensive because the children are watched in groups (so fewer supervising adults are required).

Federal law requires that hospital emergency rooms are not allowed to turn people away because of finances.
