    A 24-year-old man rescued his baby niece from a car that had fallen 100 feet from a mountainside road in Alabama, a dramatic encounter captured on his cellphone.

    Tyler Blake Kimbrall was following his sister Destiny Kay Hollis, who was driving a Mitsubishi coupe with her 11-month-old daughter Breleigh at night on Aug. 4, when she suddenly made a wrong turn on Blue Road in Colbert Heights, he told ABC News.

    Kimbrall tried flashing his lights and honking his horn, but Hollis didn't notice, he said. She continued down the "snake-like road" and disappeared after taking a sharp curve, he said.

    When he came around a few seconds later, he said he saw the car "upside down in an embankment" about 100 feet down from the mountainside road.

    "At first, I didn't see [Hollis], I didn't hear anything," Kimbrall told ABC News. But then "I heard her get out of the car, frantically screaming for Breleigh," who was still in the car, he said.

    He added that Hollis was screaming, "I don't think she's alive, I don't think she's alive," but he told her to go with his grandmother, who was in his car and asked her to call 911.

    When Kimbrall got down to the car, he said he saw the passenger side was crushed. He added he had a hard time seeing baby Breleigh, so he used the light from his cellphone and took video, using the screen to see her by angling the phone a certain way.

    "When I did first see her in the video, she appeared to be lifeless," he said. "She just laid there, passed out, unconscious, and that scared me."

    Kimbrall said he then checked for her pulse, which was still going, so he began to carefully remove her from the vehicle.

    Minutes into the seven-minute video of the rescue, baby Breleigh can finally be heard crying -- a cry that Kimbrall said "was the most precious cry he could ever hear."

    As ambulances and emergency personnel arrived, evidenced by the flashing blue and red lights in the video, Kimbrall said an EMT allowed him to continue rescuing his niece.

    "I finally got her out and handed her right over to [an EMT]," he said.

    Emergency personnel checked his sister's and Breleigh's vital signs and determined that they were OK, he added, saying they were not transported to the hospital.

    A helicopter was even launched to the scene but was cleared because it was determined "there was not a need for the trauma system to be activated," Colbert County Emergency Management Authority (EMA) director Mike Malton told ABC News. "There was a patient-refusal-for-treatment form filled out, so it doesn’t look like the victims were taken to a hospital."

    Kimbrall said everyone involved was physically fine except the car, "which was a complete loss."

    "This has definitely changed my life and made me much closer to my niece," he said. "I love her as if she was my own."

    Alabama? Kin Folk? Let's not be so fast handing out the accolades.

    Maybe he was motivated thinking she could be his betrothed in about 14 years. :dontknow:

    Well, the article, and the news report I watched, said he actually turned on the video camera because he couldn't see the baby, because she was at a weird angle. He turned on the camera and tilted it, etc., to try and see her and probably how she was stuck.

    How does a mom REFUSE taking the child to the hospital afterwards? Is she insane? I'd want a thorough exam somewhere with electricity and overhead lighting, and, call me crazy, but oh, I don't know, maybe a DOCTOR.

    Okay. CNN just reported that the family was homeless and living out of this car.

    Not to be a downer on a happy story... but I feel like there's a bit more to all of this and it'll come out at some point.

    HOLY COW, I don't know how I missed that. :oops:

    Although, truthfully, I only skimmed the article because I had just seen the story on TV. :shucks:

    I was teary until I got to that part. You're a mom, you know, you won't SLEEP for a week until you know damned sure that kid doesn't have a concussion, a brain bleed, any damage of ANY kind, until 10 doctors tell you everything is OK.

    And I am not too uptight about this. But after a car flipping??????????? I want a full body scan on my little girl, dammit!
