Hanover’s Jake Manna rescues young girl from muddy water in Plymouth | #specialneeds | #kids

PLYMOUTH – Jake Manna said his heart dropped when he saw a diaper and T-shirt floating in the water while he was looking for a 5-year-old autistic girl who had gone missing on Wednesday, July 13. 

The sight made him think the worst, Manna said, and he sprang into action.

The 20-year-old Hanover resident trekked across a river and saw the girl walking in past her waist in muddy water. After calling out for her to stop, Manna shed his shoes and socks to wade into the mud to carry the young girl out of the water. 

“It was like quicksand pretty much,” Manna said of the muddy water.
