Shane Mosley Makes Heroic Rescue Of Baby in Freeway Wreck

By Francisco Salazar

As if Shane Mosley does not take enough risks in the boxing ring, saving the life of a baby on one of Southern California's busiest freeways might top that.

Mosley played the role of a Good Samaritan early Sunday afternoon, tending to a family who was involved in a four-car vehicle accident on the 405 Freeway in the Los Angeles area.

In an interview to CBS2/ KCAL9's Brittney Hopper, Mosley was traveling on the freeway with his girlfriend when he came upon the accident. Mosley exited his vehicle and approached a car, where he saw a baby crying and bleeding from wounds to the face.


The father, who was the driver, was disoriented from the impact of the crash and was unable to unlock the vehicle from the inside.

"You don't know if the car is going to catch fire, what's going to happen, then seeing there's a baby in there," Mosley said in an interview that aired on the CBS affiliates Sunday night.

"The baby was crying and bleeding. His neck was bruised."

Mosley and his girlfriend called 911. Mosley was eventually able to open the door, carried the baby out of the car, and held him until paramedics arrived.

Paramedics took the baby to a nearby hospital, with Mosley following in his vehicle with baby bag that was left behind. The passenger, a woman who was seven months pregnant, was also transported to the hospital.

According to Mosley, the father was appreciative of Mosley's quick actions, along with those of Mosley's girlfriend.

"(The father) was crying and saying, 'You guys are like an angel' and 'Thank you for helping me.'

Afterwards, Mosley sent out a series of tweets, outlining what happened from start to finish.

Mosley (49-9-1, 41 KOs) is in preparation for his upcoming bout on May 28 against interim WBA welterweight titleholder David Avanesyan (21-1-1, 11 KOs) at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Ariz.

Mosley reportedly gave tickets to the family to attend the fight card.
