TEXARKANA, Ark. — Firefighters say it's miracle that an infant survived being thrown from a car in a crash in Arkansas Friday.

KXXV-TV reports the crash happened on I-30 in Texarkana and when emergency officials arrived, family members explained they couldn't find their 8-month-old baby.

A Good Samaritan who was helping search heard something coming from a pile of hay, reported KXXV-TV. 

As they started to dig, they found the little baby, sitting on a storm grate looking up at the rescuers.

"She wasn't screaming, she wasn't crying, was just sitting there waiting for us," said Firefighter Josh Moore.

She was immediately checked out by EMTs, and all she had was a scratch on her forehead.

"There had to be some kind of divine intervention for her to end up being okay the way she was," Moore said.

Police said they believe an 18-wheeler clipped the family's car, which is what caused the crash. The car seat was found outside the car and was not properly installed nor was the child properly restrained at the time of the crash. However, no citations were given, reports KXXV-TV.
