Good Samaritan visits boy he saved
NORTH MIAMI, Fla. (WSVN) -- The Good Samaritan who performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and saved a 6-year-old boy who had been struck by a car checked in on the young victim, Tuesday.
"Thank you, thank you, God bless you," Peggy Boulet told Franz Jean Claude during his visit to her North Miami home. "I hope that you continue to do everything that you have been doing in your line of work. I pray that you continue in that line of work because you clearly have healing hands. It's nothing short of a miracle what you did," she continued.
Boulet's only child, Keenan, was crossing the street with his grandfather on March 8 when they were hit by a car. "I can't think of life without him, I just can't," Boulet said.
Claude, an ICU nurse at an Aventura hospital, was driving to the gym when he stopped at the scene of the accident. He got out of the car and began performing CPR on the young victim. The professional caretaker took a piece of paper, tore a small hole in the center, and breathed air into Keenan, who was bleeding from the mouth. "It's just God's grace," Claude said about Keenan's survival.
Nearly a week and a half after the incident, Keenan still has fractures all over his body, including his face. "He's still pretty banged up," said Boulet. "He had to have some procedures done, but he is a trooper."
Claude was honored by the City of North Miami for his heroic efforts. Boulet attributes her ordeal's happy outcome to a higher power. "God, He does everything. They say He may not come when you want Him, but He'll be there right on time," she said.
