Watch a woman take the impact of an oncoming car and save a boy's life in the process

WATCH| Shanta Jordan took the impact of an oncoming vehicle and saved the life of a young boy. Both her and the boy were struck by the car, but she lessened the impact on him, reports News12 Connecticut.

The driver was completely out of control and police say evidence suggests he made no effort to brake. A second boy was also injured in the crash.

Both Shanta and the boy are in the hospital. At first doctors thought they would have to amputate both of the boy's legs, but after hours in the operating room, they were able to save them.

Social media is recognizing Shanta. 

A ceremony at Bridgeport's city hall is expected next week to honor her.

Update: Bridgeport Police Chief A.J. Perez delivered this statement saying  that if Jordan had not stepped in "the child would be in direct contact with the motor vehicle against the wall and most likely, he would have perished.”

Circa News has reached out to Shanta and the city to inquire about how to support her and her medical costs. We are currently attempting to verify a GoFundMe set up in her name. This story will be updated when we can confirm an official fund.
