It’s scary how much life can change in a matter of seconds. Fifty one years of working at Santa Anita Race Track made John Shear a very quick thinker, but it is absolutely amazing that he was able to move fast enough to save a 5-year-old girl from a racehorse on the run. Shear was critically injured after jumping in front of little Roxy, saving her life from the rampant animal, but made a miraculous recovery and lived to become a special hero in the young girl’s life.
Some stories are just too incredible to believe and this is definitely one of them! This man truly feels saving Roxy at 92 years old was the most important move of his entire life. It’s such a beautiful thing!
