Good Samaritan honored, credited with saving Kanawha County infant’s life

West Virginia

KANAWHA COUNTY, W. Va (WOWK) – A Kanawha County woman was honored Thursday for saving the life of an infant left in a hot car last month.

At Thursday night’s Kanawha County Commission Meeting, county commissioners honored Betty Foster and South Charleston first responders who acted quickly to save the life of an infant in the backseat of the car.

It happened late last month in the parking lot of the Southridge Walmart. Foster, who is hard of hearing, says that “by the Grace of God” she heard a baby crying in the back of a parked car.

Foster quickly called 9-1-1 and South Charleston Emergency Officials were on scene in less than 3 minutes and ultimately saved that baby’s life.
