Joshua and John Duggar, two members of the Duggar family from TLC's 19 Kids And Counting, are heroes after saving the life of a 6-year-old girl involved in a car accident last week outside of Joshua’s car dealership in Springdale, Arkansas.

Joshua says three cars got involved in a fender bender outside of his dealership last Thursday. When the crash happened, the little girl,

Maddye Plascensia, in one of the cars apparently then choked on a chicken nugget she was eating.

"She was unconscious, she was not breathing," Joshua told Arkansas TV station KHBS, at which point he and his brother John, a volunteer fireman, called 911 and administered live-saving CPR on the child.

Maddye, KHBS reported, was airlifted to Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock, where she was listed in critical condition.

That hospital is the same facility in which Josie Duggar, the family's 19th child, remains in neonatal intensive care.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar -- the patriarch and matriarch of the Duggar family -- visited Maddye in the hospital Tuesday and say doctors expect her to survive.

Joshua, ever so humble, refused to claim full credit for the deed, saying he was just a piece of the puzzle.
