Teacher Credits God After She Helps Student Save His Father's Life

A South Carolina teacher credits God when she helps a student save his father’s life after finding the boy biking down a busy highway. Keller Sutherland is a first-grade teacher at Ellen Woodside Elementary in Greenville County, South Carolina. She was driving home when she noticed a young boy riding his bike down a busy highway. When she turned her car around, that’s when she realized that the young boy was one of her former students.


7-year-old Cameron was trying to get help for his diabetic father who had collapsed at home. He tried to dial 911, but didn’t know the passcode on his father’s phone and none of his neighbors answered the door. Cameron did the only thing he could think of and climbed on his bike to ride the 5-mile journey to his grandmother’s house. It was during that trek that Keller spotted Cameron and two other gentlemen also stopped to help. They called emergency services who were able to get to Cameron’s house and assist his father.

This kind teacher knew that God placed her in the right place at the right time so that she would be able to help young Cameron. In fact, Keller was having a rough day at work before this situation. “God just showed up in an amazing way. On a day when I felt I wasn't making an impact, He just intervened and placed me where I needed to be for Cameron.” What a powerful statement from this kind-hearted teacher. And Cameron and his father are forever grateful for her assistance in their time of need.
