I can’t,” said Linda Breault, Michael’s mom.”Abby’s the one that deserves all the attention. If it wasn’t for her, I’d never have even noticed it. He’s so small that all I could see was the top of his head over the seat,” said Nathan Philbrick.The two received presents and praise from the town for their quick thinking in the situation.
