A 9-year-old Georgia girl almost died when she shoved her younger sister out of the way and took the hit from an oncoming pick-up truck last month, according to the Huffington Post.
Anaiah Tucker, of Madison, Ga., suffered a damaged spleen, lost a kidney, broke her neck and both legs, resulting in the amputation of her left one, when the truck hit, according to MSNBC.
Tucker pushed sister Camry, 5, aside when she saw the truck approaching as they crossed the street to catch the school bus, reported the Huffington Post.
The school bus driver, who arrived moments later, performed CPR on Anaiah, said MSNBC.
Their mother, Andrea Taylor, told MSNBC that the community has been helping pay for Anaiah's medical bills because she is unemployed.
The Huffington Post reported that the driver of the truck faced no charges.
