A 9 year old Sumter boy is being called a hero after coming to the aid of his elderly neighbor in his most critical situation! This “Guardian Angel” named Malachi was right in time to address the prayer of his dying neighbor by saving his life from underneath the car!
The incident happened on Saturday afternoon; Allen Clemmons was working on his Mustang convertible in the backyard. As he was attempted to remove the transmission, the car slid off the blocks and jack holding it up and fell onto Clemmons! Getting stucked under this heavy vehicle he was struggling to breath and was yelling for help! !For the next hour and a half he called out for help, but no one was around to help him.
Finally he prayed to God to send an angel,“I asked God to help me, to give me one more holler and send an angel by my way,” . As an answer to his prayer, the call reached out to Malachi , who was playing outside heard his yelling for help and came running to his aid!
After coming near to the vehicle only he could realize the seriousness of the call.He immediately grabbed a nearby jack and with the help of Clemmons guidance, he could get it back under the car!Finally with a great effort he could manage to relieve Clemmons off the weight of the car. Then he ran back to his aunt’s house to get more helps to reach him at the hospital!! They all came running with a tow truck and with the help of another jack, they were able to pull Clemons out from underneath the vehicle and got him shifted to emergency!
He is undergoing treatments at Palmetto Health in Columbia for his injuries! He has six broken ribs and a fractured pelvis and his shoulder is also banged up.He is so thankful to Malachi for saving his life as he identified the little boy as his “guardian angel send by God”!
“I don’t think I would have survived another 30 minutes,” he said. “It was getting really hard to breathe. He is truly my guardian angel.”..He was overwhelmed in emotions while extending his great gratitude for this little hero!
