Photo Of Firefighter With Injured Boy Goes Viral

After a car crash, a frightened 4-year-old boy waited for an ambulance. Firefighter Casey Lessard then calmed the injured boy down by showing him the "Happy Feet" cartoon on his phone. Captain Darren Peterson told the Daily News Tuesday "He went from crying to instantly calm." Lessard said he wanted to "take the bad out of the situation" and found the first movie that popped up on Netflix as they waited on I-10 in D'Iberville, a small town off the Gulf of Mexico. Lessard said the boy watched the movie for a bit before fidgeting again and worrying about his family.

Lessard was called to the scene after a woman and her five children, ages 1 to 7, were involved in a single vehicle car crash. The woman and three kids were ejected from the SUV as it flipped repeatedly, resulting in serious injuries. Later, Lessard found out that the boy was his friend's future stepson. He was released from the hospital Monday as two of his siblings are in critical condition. Lessard said "I just did my job. I know everyone else in our department would've done the same thing."
