Josh and John Duggar Save a Life!

On a recent afternoon, Josh, the oldest child of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, witnessed a fender-bender outside his used car lot in Springdale, Arkansas. Always willing to lend a helping hand, Josh rushed out to see what he could to. Although the accident didn't appear to be very serious, it would have been fatal for six year old Maddye Plascensia if Josh and his brother John had not been there to help save her life.

Josh told 40/29 News "I went out to see what I could do, and that's when I saw the little girl." Something was blocking Maddye's airway, as she had been eating chicken nuggets when the accident occurred. John Duggar did CPR on the little girl, who was unconscious and not breathing, while Josh called 911. Josh and John are grateful to have been able to help, but they refuse to take credit, telling the public that they were just a small piece of the puzzle. Josh commends the Springdale paramedics for taking over quickly and reviving Maddye.
Maddy Plascensia, who was airlifted to the Arkansas Children's Hospital, is stable but still in critical condition. And listen to this, she is recovering at the same hospital where Josie Duggar remains in the NICU!
Maddye's uncle thanks Josh from the "bottom of his heart," saying that without him, his niece would not be alive.

I agree. The Duggars have been in the news a lot lately, but it's nice that [most] of the stories are positive.
