MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ohio — When they found a 7-month old baby was thrown 25 feet during a crash, rescuers thought she was dead.

WHIO reports that it happened when a car ran a red light at an intersection, hitting a van being carrying Lashanda Goldsmith, her 7-month-old daughter, Madison, and a 15-year-old girl.

Madison was ejected from the car, and safety crews found her, still in her car seat, face down more than two dozen feet from the crash.

Her eyes were closed, and crews thought she was dead. Then she opened her eyes and smiled at them.

Madison’s only injury was a bruise.

Her relative Rhonda Moody told WHIO, “God does not make mistakes. I tell people that all the time. When things happen, it’s all in His will.”
