DEARBORN — An observant motorist is being called a hero after his actions last week saved the life of a 3-month-old girl, Channel 4 news reports.

Antwon Harrison said he was driving to work with his brother Aug. 1 on I-94 when they saw a car on the westbound shoulder near Addison Road, he told WDIV-TV 4.

The car looked like it had been in an accident, he said, and he thought he might be able to help because he is studying to be a medical assistant.

When he stopped, he discovered that the young girl had been ejected from the car when a driver, who police said might have been drunk, smashed into it. Harrison gave the girl cardiopulmonary rescuscitation and then took her 12-year-old brother, who suffered a broken leg, and two adults to Oakwood Hospital & Medical Center.

Police said the family was experiencing car trouble and standing on the side of the road when their car was rear-ended by a black Dodge Charger.
