MADISON COUNTY, GA — Long ago, Bryant Collins learned the value of choosing the right path.
“I’ve been in a lot of bad situations,” he told 11Alive’s Matt Pearl.
But this past Friday, Collins found, on the side of the road, a chance to save a life.
“I had seen something out of the corner of my eye, and I thought it was a baby,” Collins recalled. “I just stopped and, when I got out, there was a baby … almost in the highway.”
Collins’ reaction? “The same that yours would have been, man … ‘What the hell is going on? A baby?'”
It was a 15-month-old baby that had crawled through the woods, 300 yards from home, and nearly onto Highway 72.
