Seven year old Hannah Martin was known for her love of dance and her infectious smile. That all changed on a dark early fall morning in 2012.
As Hannah was waiting to be picked up by the school bus, tragedy struck. She was killed when the bus accidentally ran her over at the bus stop.
The early morning darkness is one of the factors that is believed to have caused the tragic accident.
LifeNet responded to the scene. Paramedic Bobby King wanted to do something to help prevent another tragedy like Hannah’s from occurring and came up with the idea to provide flashing lights for kids to wear on their backpacks while waiting for the school bus.
The lights are known as “Hannah’s Light” in memory of this precious little girl.
The lights cost $1.25 each and are provided free of charge to area schools in part from community donations. A $10 donation provides lights for 8 kids in your community. LifeNet provides roughly 6500 lights a year throughout Garland and Hot Springs Counties.
