Pregnant Woman trapped underwater rescued

October 31, 2009

PRINCE GEORGES COUNTY, MD – Cheryl Davis believes the series of events that saved daughter Sade Davis’ life after a near-deadly car accident left her submerged underwater is nothing short of a miracle.

Sade Davis, 23, who is seven and a half months pregnant, was on her way to Silver Spring from her home in Clinton on Saturday morning when her car slid off the road, hit at least one tree and flipped over into a creek near the 8900 block of Temple Hills Road, her mother said. Sade Davis had no pulse and was not breathing when emergency responders pried her out of her car, but she suffered no serious, long-term injury except for some short-term memory loss — the last thing she said she remembers is her baby shower on Oct. 17 — and a gash on her head.

She was released from Washington Hospital Center on Wednesday and is recuperating at home with her parents, Cheryl and Jerome Davis, and sister, Jenia Davis.

“I’m doing great,” she said. “I’m in a little pain, but I’m just glad I can feel the pain.”

The baby, a boy who is due for delivery on Dec. 9, is also fine, she added.

On Saturday morning, firefighters and paramedics from the Clinton Fire/EMS Station were en route to another medical emergency call on the 8700 block of Temple Hills Road when an unidentified passer-by flagged them down. The man said he had seen a car go off the road and into a nearby creek.

“You couldn’t see the vehicle from the road,” said Dave Wilson of Severn, a firefighter and paramedic who was on the scene. “You couldn’t tell at first someone was in there.”

Sade Davis has no memory of the accident, but responders believe she likely lost control of her car on a sharp turn made slick by recent rain.

Wilson, along with fellow Clinton station responders Wesley Auld, Lt. Dale Giampetroni and Derian Whitted, ran down the embankment to assess the scene after requesting another vehicle to handle the original call

About This Blog


Fallen Just like my mission statement says i want to know how your local department has help you and i want to start a blog that will let the fire fighter's know how much we care!!!

When I am called to duty, God,

Whenever flames may rage;

Give me strength to save some life,

Whatever be its age.

Help me embrace a little child

Before it is too late

Or save an older person

From the horror of that fate.

Enable me to be alert

And hear the weakest shout,

And quickly and efficiently

To put the fire out.

I want to fill my calling

And to give the best in me

To guard my every neighbor

And protect his property.

And if, according to my fate,

I am to lose my life,

Please bless with your protecting

My children and my wife.
