The baby that was ejected from this roll-over accident in Washington is expected to be okay.

UPDATE: Surrey baby makes stunning recovery

`Thank God somebody is looking out for him,' Washington State Trooper

A three-month-old Surrey baby has made a stunning recovery after being ejected from from a vehicle in Washington last week.

“Thank God somebody is looking out for him,” Washington State Trooper Keith Leary told Black Press Monday. “We were thinking the worst, and things change like that for some times you never know.”

At just after 11 a.m. Thursday, a 27-year-old Surrey woman and her three children were heading northbound on the I-5 near Mount Vernon when the driver was distracted as her Honda SUV drifted on to the rumble strips. She was startled and attempted to correct back into her lane and rolled the vehicle.

The three-month-old was ejected.

“Both boy and seat landed in two different places on the roadway, which would indicate the child seat and child were not properly secured in the vehicle,” said Washington State Trooper Keith Leary.

All four people in the vehicle were injured and taken to Skagit Valley Hospital. The boy who was ejected was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center with a serious head injury.

The mother suffered arm and head injuries, while the six- and seven-year-old girls experienced minor injuries.

Drugs and alcohol are not factors in the incident, according to state police.

“She was cited for improper lane travel and a child seat violation,” Leary said. The total amount of the fines were $248 US.
