COLUMBIANA, Ala. (WIAT) — “We thought we’d lost a grandchild, which is very difficult,” Larry Rush said, choked up with emotion as he recalled the moment he thought his family had lost 2-year-old Austin Rush.
Austin Rush was hit by a car and his father, Matthew Rush, is a paramedic who responded to the scene to render life-saving aid to his own son.
