Wiggins (MS) Firefighter Pinned Under Fire Apparatus Discusses What Saved Her Life

Kaille Randolph, the 26-year-old firefighter who got trapped under a fire apparatus after it wrecked on the way to an accident scene on May 19, says in an interview with WLOX that her seatbelt and safety gear saved her life.

Randolph suffered a concussion, a laceration to her face that required stitches, several broken bones in her foot, and second-degree burns on her legs, according to a Facebook post by Wiggins Fire Department.

Randolph is temporarily in a wheelchair due to three breaks in her right foot and three fractures in her left, the report said.

On the day of the accident, the Wiggins Fire Department made the following Facebook post:

“Around midnight our department was responding to a major vehicle accident when our engine got into an accident. The engine rolled and trapped one of our firefighters under it. The firefighter was life-flighted to a hospital, but by the grace of God, is expected to make a full recovery. We are asking for prayers for the firefighter and the firefighter’s family and all of us here at Wiggins Fire Department. We appreciate the support and look forward to continuing to serve our community and getting our firefighter back with us soon!”
