• A 2-year-old girl got ejected from a vehicle after a crash
  • An undentified person jumped into the bay to rescue the toddler
  • The girl was listed in stable condition at a Baltimore hospital

A 2-year-old girl, who got ejected from a vehicle over Assawoman Bay in Maryland and fell into the water below following a crash, was rescued by a Good Samaritan.

The incident took place Sunday shortly before 3.00 p.m. ET on the Route 90 Bridge in Ocean City following a multi-vehicle crash. At least eight individuals, including the toddler, were sent to the hospital following the crash, media outlet Delmarva Daily Times reported.

A fire marshal, who responded to the crash, found the vehicle suspended half over guardrail. "A Worcester County Fire Marshal quickly arrived on the scene and informed communications one vehicle was half over guardrail, and multiple patients were injured," according to a Facebook post by the Ocean City Fire Department.

After the baby fell into the water, a person jumped over the guardrail and into the bay to rescue her, ABC-affiliated WJLA-TV reported. The toddler was then airlifted to Johns Hopkins Children's Center. The person did not wish to be identified.

The baby was listed in a stable condition as of Monday, according to a news release from the Ocean City Police Department. The other seven people, who were involved in the crash, were also released from the hospital.

"The crash, which involved five vehicles, sent eight people to the hospital, including a 2-year-old who was ejected from a pickup truck with her car seat, landing in the bay below," according to the release.

A witness told the police the toddler was knocked unconscious after making contact with the water, prompting the Good Samaritan to perform CPR on her. Both the Good Samaritan and the child were rescued by boaters who saw them, the Ocean City Police Department said in the news release.

The Route 90 Bridge stands at 40 feet from Assawoman Bay. The water of the shallow inland bay below goes knee-deep at times. The crash remains under investigation.

An investigation of the crash revealed the driver failed to maintain his lane and crashed a light pole and a tree before the vehicle spun and came to a rest in the middle of the street. Savannah Police Department
