SAN ANTONIO, TX – The name of the nurse who helped rescue a toddler after an alleged drunk driver crashed through her bedroom has been released, KSAT reports.
Sharon Acker, Brooke Army Medical Center trauma nurse, was walking home from work around 11 p.m. on October 7 when she came upon the crash scene.
Acker did not notice anyone outside, so she went to see if anyone was inside the car. Nobody was inside the vehicle, so she then knocked on the door of the house. No one answered. She then called 911.
The dispatcher told Acker to remain outside until police arrived because the damage to the house may have made it unsafe. Acker then heard a child’s voice from inside the home, so she crawled through the wreckage and broken glass to check on her condition.
When Acker entered the room, she noticed that the impact from the collision had pushed the bed, which was covered in bricks and glass, up against the door.
Officers arrived shortly after she located the child and they worked together to extricate her. Acker then remained with the girl until medical personnel came. The girl had blood on her face.
The girl’s father, Carlos Duran, fell asleep wearing headphones and was unaware the incident had occurred.
Details on the girl’s current condition are unavailable.
