A Black heroic woman is in hospital after saving a young boy.
Shanta Jordan turned out to be a real-life Black hero as she dared jump in front of a speeding car trying to save a small boy from a horrible accident, which doctors later said might have killed him.
The uncontrollably moving car threw Jordan and the kid against a stone wall. Unfortunately, the woman didn’t have enough time to push them both away from danger.
“If she did not step in, the child would be in direct contact with the motor vehicle against the wall, and most likely, he would have perished,” Bridgeport Police Chief A.J. Perez commented. “He would have died.”

Now both Jordan and the kid are in the hospital. The Black hero’s body absorbed most of the damage so the doctors didn’t have to amputate the little boy’s legs. Local leaders are planning to honor Shanta Jordan with a special ceremony at the City Hall next week.
We adore the actions of the selfless woman! We wish media paid Black heroes like her the attention they deserve.
