"Baby Thrown From Bridge" was the headline which drew me to a News item, thinking it was a deliberate wicked act. Turns out that there was a car crash on the bridge and the 2-year-old baby was ejected through the window over the edge of the bridge. It all took place on the Route 90 bridge, Ocean City, USA.

Fortunately a guy jumped into the water and saved the child. A plucky act by a true hero. But how terrifying for the poor child.

Here is a video of a boat picking them up (turn the sound off if you don't want inane commentary, including the obligatory OMGs).

Not sure of your point on this. Is clcik bait your problem or are you highlighting the plight of the poor child or the heroic bravery of the fella that jumped in?

Not making a point, just publishing a tale of a Good Samaritan. I don't have a problem.
OK, well yes I agree a nice tale.
You are the reason they use those sort of headlines! They want people to go to their page so in that case yes it was click bait.
the headline was certainly misleading . . .
the driver one Billy joe smith of Tallahatchee, said the bridge was quite difficult to drive over, and she thought what had blown out was a bin bag ....
