Boxing champ Sugar Shane Mosley saves baby
trapped in four-car pile-up
BY KERI BLAKINGER/New York Daily News
Now he’s a champion and a hero. Boxing champ Shane Mosley — also known as Sugar — saved a baby stuck in a four-car pile-up Sunday on Interstate 405, according to KCBS-TV. The former three-weight world champ said that he pulled over to help as soon as he spotted the wreckage. “You don’t know if the car is going to catch fire, what’s going to happen, then seeing there’s a baby in there,” the 44-year-old told the Los Angeles TV station. When he got closer to the scene, he found the bleeding baby still stuck in his car seat. Mosley wasn’t able to get into the car to rescue the little tyke because his father — who was driving — wasn’t with it enough to unlock the doors.
So, he did the next logical thing and had his girlfriend call 911. “The baby was crying and bleeding, his neck was bruised,” the pugilist said. “My girl got blood all over her jacket from the baby,” he tweeted later. When the ambulance showed up, Mosley snatched the baby bag from the wrecked car and followed along to the hospital.
He asked his girlfriend to call the baby’s mother and later talked to the father once he came back to his senses.
He was crying and saying, you guys are like an angel, and thank you for helping me. And being there for me and protecting my son,” Mosley recalled. “The baby & the dad are ok!” he announced on Twitter. “Turns out his wife is 7 months pregnant. So it’s a real gift he & the baby in the car are ok.” To top it all off, Mosley gave the traumatized family tickets to an upcoming fight in May.
