‘Miracle’ Credited For Saving Boy Crushed By Huge Rock At Virginia Christmas Tree Farm

  • The grandmother of an eight-year-old boy who was wedged under a large boulder at Snickers Gap Christmas Tree Farm in Round Hill is reaching out to the community to thank the rescuers who helped save her grandson’s life.
  • On Nov. 24, Jeanie Baird, of Smithfield, was at the tree farm — where they meet every year to get their tree — with her husband, Keith, grandson Ethan Chrisman and his twin sister Annabelle, along with her son, Jarred Baird, and his wife Jen, and their two children, Grayson, 6, and Connor, 2, who live in Centreville.
  • It was in the late afternoon and starting to get dark when they loaded their Christmas tree on top of the car. Ethan and the other grandchildren were playing in an area of large boulders up the hill when she got a call from her daughter-in-law that something had happened to Ethan.
