A firefighter riding behind a bus in Harrison, Arkansas watch as a little girl swung on the emergency door and fell to the road below as the bus kept going. Ryan Ciampoli, a volunteer in Crawford County, rushed to the girl’s side and got her out of the roadway. The scene was caught on Ciampoli’s dash-cam.

WFLA-TV:

He said she was unconscious at first, but woke up before he picked her up.

He carried her away from the road and checked her vital signs before paramedics came to the scene.

Ciampoli told reporters he normally wouldn’t move someone so quickly after a traumatic injury, but he wanted to get the girl out of harm’s way.

The child reportedly suffered a broken jaw and is in need of surgery, but she’s expected to make a full recovery.
