Plymouth Police Credit Hanoverian, 20, For Saving Life Of Missing Girl, Five – Boston News, Weather, Sports

PLYMOUTH, MASS. (WHDH) – After 20-year-old Jake Manna jumped to the rescue to save a five-year-old girl who was lying idle in a swamp, Plymouth credited the man with saving the child’s life.

“I’m no hero,” Manna said. “Anyone would do it in my place.”

Manna was at work installing solar panels on a house in Plymouth when news broke that a five-year-old girl with autism had disappeared.

Accompanied by a neighbor, the Hanoverian went in search of the forest. Manna feared the worst when he saw a diaper and a long T-shirt in the water of a stream.

“My heart sank,” Manna said. “I sprinted to the swamp.”

Manna called to the girl and asked her to come ashore. When she didn’t move, Manna removed his socks and shoes to wade into the water behind her. Manna was able to collect the missing girl and hand it over to the neighbor who was waiting on the shore.

“I am very grateful to the Lord and thank God He was there,” the mother of the rescued child told 7NEWS.

According to Plymouth Police Capt. Jason Higgins, Manna’s actions

“There are many rivers – the swampy area. A dangerous place for a five-year-old,” Higgins said. “The little girl had a guardian angel and his name was Jake.”

Manna later received an award from the Plymouth Police Chief and went out to dinner later that evening, where he said he was treated to a free meal.

“A random couple offered – actually they didn’t offer. They just paid for it and didn’t tell me and just left,” Manna said. “It was really cool.”
