For every action, there's a reaction. When you see a red light, you stop. When Amie Thomas saw a car off the road, she stopped and reacted.
"I saw there was a car, nose down, in the water," Thomas says. "I just jumped in."
She waded all the way over to Eva Hall and her two year old daughter, Jaycie.
"I was more nervous about her than anything," Hall says. Nervous that she wouldn't be able to make it back to the road.
"I didn't know how I was going to get her from the car into the road. If i jumped in, it would've gone over her head," she says.
Fortunately, Thomas knew she couldn't give up.
"I had two children of my own, and all I could think of was that sweet baby," Thomas says.
Amie Thomas managed to do exactly what she needed to do, help get both of them back to shore and back to safety. Eva couldn't be more thankful.
"Everybody was really concerned that we were O.K. and not seriously hurt," Eva says.
It's been nearly a month since the harrowing accident. Nearly a month for the scars to heal. But a month later, Hall's still thankful for Thomas's action.
"I'm extremely glad my daughter wasn't hurt or killed," Hall says.
Thomas believes guard rails are needed on that stretch of 70 to prevent any future incidents like the one last month.
