A young mother in Waco, Texas became a hero after saving her infant child from a 30-foot fall off a bridge. Her heroism came with an incredible cost leaving her body shattered and wheelchair bound. After their car was involved in a minor fender-bender, 23-year-old Jennifer Duncan and her 8-month old son moved off the main road to what they believe to be a safe area. Seconds later another car struck them and sent mother and child plummeting over the edge. As she fell Jennifer held her infant son tight and turned her body to take the worst of the fall. Other than a single scratch, the infant was fine. Jennifer however, was anything but. Seven months after the accident she discusses her incredible sacrifice with the local news.
