"I had seen something out of the corner of my eye, and I thought it was a baby," Bryant Collins told WXIA-TV. "I just stopped and, when I got out, there was a baby … almost in the highway."

The 15-month-old baby had crawled through the woods — 300 yards from home — and nearly made her way onto a highway before Collins made the rescue.

Ultimately, Collins stayed with the baby for two hours.

"The baby started crying," he told WXIA, "so I turned my phone on and let her listen to some gospel music, and she calmed right down."

Collins added to the local outlet that he is an ex-convict who served time and reformed himself in prison.

"I did ten years in the federal institution for manufacturing cocaine," he said. "When I was in prison, I made a very conscientious effort to change, and I did."
