Fire and police units were dispatched to the bridge a little after 2:45 p.m., the Ocean City Fire Department said in a news release.

Arriving authorities found one vehicle half over the guardrail and multiple people injured, the department said.

“During the collision, one pediatric patient was ejected from the car teetering over the guardrail and landed into the Assawoman Bay,” it added.

That’s when a good Samaritan stepped in and made a brave rescue — by “immediately” jumping over the guardrail and into the bay, saving the infant.
