Three-Year-Old Keith Williams and Pastor Jack Greene: Life-Savers

On 12 July 2014, Bob King, age 68, found himself locked in his car outside the Vestal Baptist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee. Mr. King said, “We’ve been having trouble with the door on this car since we bought it.” Mr. King was unable to open the door because of weakness from cancer treatments and two strokes. The weather was hot: 91 degrees F. Fortunately, three-year-old Keith Williams walked by, and Mr. King was able to get his attention by tapping on a car window. Mr. King said, “I hollered at him and he just looked at me kind of funny and I said ‘Get help, get help.’” Keith ran to Pastor Jack Greene, who said, “I was talking to someone and little Keith came behind me and kept saying, ‘Locked, locked, locked.’” Keith also kept pulling at Pastor Greene’s hand and saying, “Hot, hot, hot.” Pastor Greene said, “I told the gentleman [I was speaking to], ‘Excuse me for a minute’ and I followed him [Keith] out. When I saw Bob in the car, I said to myself, ‘Oh, my Lord.’” Mr. King was in bad shape. Pastor Greene said, “His whole body was raining sweat. His face was red like a pickled beet. I asked him three times: ‘Are you OK, Bob?’” Pastor Greene took Mr. King inside the church, which had air conditioning, and soon Mr. King was fine. Keith’s mother, Jessie Williams, said, “I am very impressed and I’m proud that he would know what to do.” Pastor Greene said, “He [Keith] said, ‘I saved life’ after I brought Bob inside. He is such a good kid. He is an inspiration and blessing to us.”
