Photo Of Firefighter At The Scene Of An Awful Crash Goes Viral

Firefighter Casey Lessard from Mississippi has been receiving a lot of praise recently after a photo of him comforting an injured child at the scene of an awful crash went hugely viral online. An SUV had flipped several times off of Interstate 110, and five people, including the child, were flung out of the vehicle.

While the rescue crew was preparing to transport the injured to a hospital, Casey went out of his way to comfort the injured child by laying down beside him and playing Happy Feet, a popular animated children's film, on his cell phone.

Fire Captain Darren Peterson said, "The kids…we do whatever we can to calm them down. The video calmed him down instantly."

The cause of the crash is currently unknown.
