Lessard was called to the scene after a woman and her five children, ages 1 to 7, were involved in a single vehicle car crash. The woman and three kids were ejected from the SUV as it flipped repeatedly, resulting in serious injuries, authorities said.
The 4-year-old boy and a sister were in car seats and suffered the least critical injuries. Good Samaritans got them out of the overturned car before authorities arrived.
The boy was the last to be transported to the hospital, and Lessard tried to distract him as they waited.
Later, Lessard found that boy was his friend’s future stepson. The boy was recently released from the hospital, however his siblings remain in critical condition.
