PCSO Saves Baby in Runaway Car
3:51pm 3rd July 2014
A dad has told of the moment his car rolled down a hill towards a packed Cornish beach ... with his baby daughter still strapped inside.
Simon Cohen desperately tried to hold it back when the handbrake went at Trevaunance Cove in St Agnes.
He is praising a police community support officer - who drove his car into its path to save fourteen month old Seren: "PCSO Hill is a complete hero in my eyes. He is a testament to the Force.
"He saw the look in my eyes as the car rolled backwards and made a quick decision to put himself in harm's way. He is an absolute legend.
"I am eternally grateful and would like to say a huge thank you for what he did. If he hadn't taken that action my daughter could have been harmed as well as other pedestrians, and property could have been severely damaged.
"What he did and how he responded afterwards was professional, calm and kind. The officers that arrived at the scene afterwards were nothing but kind, calm and warm as well.
"He made what could have been a traumatic experience into something we can all learn from.
"If all of the other officers in the Force are like PCSO Hill, we're in safe hands.
"Although Seren was oblivious to the situation, if she could speak, I'm sure she would say thank you to the officer as well."
