After the lx>y was struck, about 7:55 a.m., the family's babysitter, Kathy Moran, rushed from the porch of the Craigmiles home and picked up the unconscious boy from the pavement. William was hit when he crossed the road to catch a school bus. The parents of the boy ran to Kathy and took their son from the babysitter's arms.

By virtue of its insulating properties , it can be worn in a wide range of temperatures, being comfortable for early autumn (like 60) as well as late winter (like zero and below, depending upon your circulation).
