on the garden state parkway with cars whizzing by a New Jersey state trooper jumps into his patrol car after seeing a site to bring fear into anyone's eyes slamming it into reverse in the southbound lanes. I was driving in the left lane and I saw the kid and The kid and the shoulder on the other side of the Guardrails Chasing two dogs and my first thought was this is about to be a tragedy, trooper. Tomorrow, Morris with body cam rolling jumps out of his suv spotting a little boy chasing his two dogs on the highway near the PNC arts Center. Stephanie wright was one step ahead you can see her suv on the left. She helped stop trap. This is a crisis or it could be a crisis but I think that I just went into a mom type mode where my initial reaction was to stop, you know, to slow down back in the middle of the road, Trooper Morris family approaching the child started but whatever you do and if he bit me, it's just something that had to happen. It's either that or let the dog run. Where are your parents back yet. Super Morris picks up one of the pups and walks the boy and the other dog to his suv and out of danger White snapped these pictures from her stop car after the rescue. She sent a letter with them praising trooper Morris recounting to me her moments with the boy and I remember saying to him, it's gonna be okay, it's gonna be okay, Everything's gonna be okay and you know, he looked into my eyes and that's how I was able to see, you know, the fear, the shock and the little lip quivering. Did you really think it was going to be ok? At that point, I didn't know, but this highway rescue made everything okay, brought this yell to the trooper from Stephanie, now sitting in her car in these times. We're so divided. Um We all came from different places and different, we have different jobs, um different families and in that moment we all worked together to again, to to avoid a crisis.
