At about 1:30 pm last Wednesday, Shanta Jordan saved a young boy’s life.

Surveillance video caught the young woman as she quickly realized that a young boy was in the path of a car that was careening out of control, and she immediately threw herself in front of the boy to try to protect him.

Police are saying she saved his life.

“If she did not step in, the child would be in direct contact with the motor vehicle against the wall and most likely, he would have perished, he would have died,” Bridgeport Police Chief A.J. Perez told WGN 9.
