"As a mom, that just goes right to your heart. My immediate instinct was: 'You have to help that little guy,'" Woodward told the Statesman.
Joel Woodward broke the back window using a trailer hitch and reached Killian. He instructed her to immobilize the head until help arrived.
“My first instinct would have been to cradle the little guy, but clearly that would have been the wrong choice,”
She held Killian's head steady for 30 minutes until emergency medics arrived and applied a collar before loading him into an ambulance.
Killian ruptured his spleen, broke multiple ribs and his arm. His skull was also separated from his spine, a condition known as clinical or internal decapitation.
According to KBOI, less than one percent survive the injury, but Killian is expected to make a full recovery. Also notable is that he will not undergo surgery
He is also walking and eating.
