Go Au Pair Au Pair saved a baby from a distracted truck driver.

On May 13th, Sharon Lizcano Tellez, an Au Pair from Colombia, performed a truly heroic act. She saved the life of an 8-month-old she has been caring for, from a distracted truck driver, while crossing a street at a cross walk. Realizing that the accident was unavoidable, Sharon protected the baby by shifting her body and absorbing the impact of the crash to her left side, away from the child.

I have been working with the Au Pair program in Philadelphia for the past 3 years and have never heard of such a courageous story. As a Local Area Representative for Go Au Pair in Philadelphia, upon meeting Sharon for the first time, I immediately noticed that she is an outstanding Au Pair, mature and responsible with a warm and caring personality. I was impressed when she showed up  at our meeting on the second day after she arrived.


Sharon is a 26 year old Au Pair from Colombia.  She has a lot of experience with kids and worked as an Au Pair in Holland before coming to the USA. Sharon is a very giving person. She loves children from her heart and cares for them as if they were her own.

Her friend, a 20 year old Au Pair Maria from El Salvador, was walking with the second baby in a stroller. Maria was  hit by a distracted driver of a van too, and  was slightly injured. Fortunately the baby escaped unharmed. You can see Maria on the video, volunteering for FRUA Holiday party.

We are proud of our Au Pairs who are experienced, reliable, and responsive, provide the highest level of childcare and become a part of the family and the local community as well.
