OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — Authorities in Maryland say a bystander jumped over a highway guard rail and into a bay to rescue a child who had been thrown from a car and into the water during a crash.

The Ocean City Fire Department says the child was ejected from a car on the Route 90 bridge in Ocean City on Sunday and landed in the Assawoman Bay. Officials say authorities were called to the scene just before 3 p.m. and discovered one car hanging off the side of the bridge.

The agency says three other cars were involved in the crash. The department says seven adults were taken to hospitals and the child was flown to a Baltimore hospital.
