'Adrenaline was going': Starla Littletent recalls helping out at crash
No serious injuries reported in weekend crash
A Regina woman, Starla Littletent, remembers moving quickly to help out at a fiery car crash in the city on the weekend.
Littletent was with her partner Terrance Littletent (a world champion hoop dancer) on their way to a performance when they came across the crash, a head-on collision at 1st Avenue and Lewvan Drive.
"The accident had [just] happened and we stopped and I saw this guy getting out of his car running to the other side," Starla Littletent said. "That's when I realized he had kids with him."
Littletent said she had Terrance pull over so she could help the family from the burning wreck.
"I just remember feeling the heat and the adrenaline was going. I remember feeling scared, but also I needed to help. I had to."
Littletent helped a young child from his car seat and the father grabbed his little girl.
Everyone was safe, including the driver of the other vehicle who was in a car with a pet.
Littletent said it was the first time she used her training in first aid.
"He just had some bruises and scratches, mostly shocked and scared," Littletent said of the small child she pulled from the car.
"As a mother you do anything to protect your child," Littletent said. "That day I was tested and it wasn't even my child. Being a mother of six, it shows you where you stand."
"I never experienced anything like that," she added. "I just hope someone would do something like that for me down the road."
