GoFundMe for Rescued Toddler Tops $50,000

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – It was the fiery car rescue that some are calling “miraculous.”

“I asked if anybody was still inside, and to my recollection the grandfather was the one who responded, he said there’s a baby inside,” says motorist Jennifer Emo, who reached into a burning car to save 2-year-old Paisley Ervin.

It happened over the weekend on Interstate 70 near O’Fallon, Missouri. The GoFundMe account to help with medical expenses for Paisley has now raised more than $50,000.

Emo says Paisley underwent surgery Thursday and is “showing strength.” She’s still listed in critical, but stable condition.

People can also send money to Paisley and her family through the United Credit Union, to Paisley Ervin, 200 Main St., Troy MO, 63379. Fundraiser shirts are also available via a family friend on Facebook.
