(WOAI) Their mom died saving their lives. Now, two young children hit by a car are opening up about the physical and emotional wounds they're still overcoming.

Police say 28-year-old Sharon Ledesma pushed her son and daughter out of the way of an oncoming car late last month on the West Side.

The children spoke to News 4 San Antonio about the accident and what they're doing to remember their mom.

It was early morning October 23rd at the intersection of Culebra Road and Consuelo.

Sharon Ledesma and her two kids were crossing the street, when the young mother spotted a car headed right for them.

Dominic Rojas still needs crutches, but the 11-year-old insists he's feeling better. The same goes for his 8-year-old sister Mallory.
