Kevin Ayala, a traffic controller working near a recreation area by the beach in Carpinteria leapt into action as he heard the cries of a frantic mother seeking help for her baby. The traffic controller, from Traffic Management, Inc., responded to her pleas to get her baby out of a locked car in the parking lot.
“His dedication to keeping his community safe may have saved a life,” TMI Executive Management stated.
Though 911 was called, minutes were ticking by and the baby continued to cry. With the mother’s permission, he safely broke the front car window so that the doors could be opened, and the baby rescued. Mom and child were reunited.
TMI awarded this employee the TMI Hero Award in recognition of his quick thinking and service to the community.
