As a dedicated video gamer, it can be safely assumed that Ohio man Doyle Higgins has seen many an alarming and potentially deadly scenario on screen. But now he has a life-or-death situation from reality that he can watch whenever the mood takes him, thanks to his dash-mounted camera. The 46-year-old was driving in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio, in spring 2016, when an unexpected sight in his windshield forced him to brake. The gamer was utterly shocked to see a toddler standing right in the middle of the busy road ahead – and for the wee one it was almost game over.
On Saturday, April 23, 2016 Higgins and his wife, Nancy, were returning home after a grocery shopping trip to their local Kroger. It was a sunny spring afternoon, and it can only be presumed that their journey by Jeep through Cincinnati had gone without a hitch. At least it may have done until they turned that fateful corner into Fehr Road in the Delhi Township.
