Amish Toddler Is Only Survivor in Wisconsin Crash That Kills 9

An Amish toddler is the only survivor of a crash in Wisconsin that left 9 people dead, according to reports.

The 2-year-old boy was rescued after the deadly crash between a van and tractor-trailer killed seven members of his Amish community.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office said the crash occurred Friday.

It happened on Highway 95 in western Wisconsin, southeast of Eau Claire.

The young child survived after he was thrown from the van.

He was quickly rescued by a good Samaritan Nathaniel Jahn.

Jahn witnessed the vehicle turn into the path of the semi-truck at an intersection.

Speaking about being able to save the child, Jahn told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

“I think God put me there for a reason.”

However, Jahn said he was unable to help any others after the van burst into flames.

The sheriff’s office said the drivers of both vehicles died in the crash.

Seven passengers in the van were also killed.

According to FOX9 Minneapolis, nearly all the victims in the van were from an Amish community in rural Burke’s Garden, Virginia.
