“As a father myself, I couldn’t let it sit in its own urine, feces and vomit,” said Graham. “So I went ahead and drew a bath in the sink of the detachment and was able to clean him up a little bit and get him feeling a little bit better.”
Graham had washed the baby clean. As you can tell, the baby was very happy and appreciative of Graham’s efforts. After the bath, Graham had watched and comforted the 1-year-old until CPS officials arrived.
The driver faces DUI charges with a minor, and the baby is now under the care of a legal guardian.
