Teacher Spots Child Riding His Bike On The Highway, Helps Him Save His Father
February 13, 2019
Teachers create bonds with their students every day.
This week, a teacher and former student saved a life.
Keller Sutherland, a first grade teacher at Ellen Woodside Elementary in South Carolina, was driving home last week when she noticed a child riding his bike down highway 25 in Greenville.
Her intuition told her something was wrong, so she turned around and planned to ask him where he was going.
When Sutherland stepped out of her car to approach the boy she immediately recognized him.
"Oh my gosh that's Cameron," she recalled. "That's my student, I had him last year."
Cameron, 7, told Sutherland that his diabetic father had collapsed at his house. He said he tried to call 911, but he didn't know the passcode to his father's phone. He then tried the neighbors, but no one was home. His last resort was to ride his bike five miles to his grandmother's house.
Emergency responders arrived at Cameron's home and found his father barely conscious on the bathroom floor. He was treated at the scene and has made a full recovery.
Sutherland says as a teacher, her job goes far beyond the classroom.
"I truly care for these kids," said Sutherland, "and on a day when I felt like I wasn't making an impact, and then God just intervened and placed me where I needed to be in that moment for Cameron."
