My coworker was talking to this lady on the phone today.
This lady got into an accident on the freeway. Her vehicle flipped 5 times. The vehicle landed on the roof. All of the air bags deployed.
She was injured, had a torn artery and blood was spewing everywhere. She was with her 7 year old son and 8 year old daughter. Her daughter unlatched herself out from the seat while she was upside down. Her daughter then unbuckled her brother’s seat belt, got him out the car and calmed him down until he stopped crying. Then she proceeded to unlock her mother’s seat belt, got her out the car, calmed her down until she stopped crying as well, and told her to keep her eyes open while comforting her. Then she dialed 911.
This little girl is only eight years old, however she acted as a fully grown leader in a time of crisis.
