Sikeston man saves boy from burning truck
SIKESTON, Mo. — Jimmy Gipson rescued a 2-year-old child from a burning semi truck outside the former Essex building Wednesday morning. "The truck was at the dock and I saw that it was on fire when I was pulling into the lot," Gipson said. "I was running inside to tell them the truck was on fire and I saw him out of the corner of my eye — there was a little boy trying to get out of the truck." Gipson said that's when he pulled the boy from the truck. The toddler suffered no injuries. His father is an over-the-road driver.
