STATESBORO, GA – A 10-year-old boy was lying face down in the dirt. The top bar of a flipped ATV was pressing the back of his neck. Hundreds of pounds of metal were pressing the life out of him. He was turning blue.
Today, that 10-year-old boy is at home with a few bruises and scratches. The moments between then and now were captured by dash cam video.
Sgt. Rey Rodriguez was patrolling along I-16 when a call came through the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office reporting a traffic accident on private property.
When Rodriguez pulled up, he saw an ATV tipped on its side. Video captures the moment he comes around the side and realizes a boy is trapped beneath.
