Caught on video: Man can be heard praying as he frees niece from wreckage

Tyler Blake Kimbrell was following his sister, Destiny, along an Alabama road earlier this month when her car plummeted 100 feet over the side of a hill and landed upside down. 

She was thrown from the wreckage and wasn't hurt, but Kimbrell's 11-month-old niece, Breleigh, was trapped inside the vehicle.

"The first thing I saw was what looked like a lifeless body laying there, but I knew there was hope," Kimbrell told WHNT.

Kimbrell can be heard in his cell-phone, which he used to light the way to Breleigh, praying, "Lord Jesus, please watch over us and let my niece be OK. Please, God. Please let my niece be OK." 

He said he recorded the wreck to prove that the car's brakes failed as he explained on the video.

Before watching the video, Kimbrell does get the little girl out of the wreckage, and emergency crews on the scene checked her out.

He has set up a GoFundMe page to help raise money for Destiny and her little girl. According to the page, Destiny was living out of her car at the time of the crash. The mother and daughter, according to the fundraising page, lost their clothing, cellphone and personal items.
