The incident took place on Sunday along the Route 90 bridge in Ocean City and left eight people injured, among them a toddler who had been ejected from a silver pickup truck into the Assawoman Bay.

A Good Samaritan immediately jumped over the guardrail and into the bay, rescuing the infant.

Eyewitness Tricia Michele Roberts-Oertel captured the hero -- who asked to remain anonymous -- on film.

The man can be seen cradling the child in his arms while swimming in the bay, before handing her over to someone on a private boat.

The child is in stable condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The other 7 injured are expected to recover.
