You won’t believe how brave this little girl was, read the story below and share…
A 5-year-old Canadian girl may very well have saved her family’s life by flagging down help after her mother crashed their car.
The incident occurred on June 8. Angela Shymanski was driving near a mountainous area when she fell asleep at the wheel and veered down a 40-foot ridge, the New York Daily News reported. She had her 5-year-old daughter and 10-week-old son in the vehicle.
That’s when 5-year-old Lexi Shymanski took action. She unclipped herself from the car seat, pulled herself out of the smashed SUV door and climbed up the ridge barefoot to flag down some help.
“It’s crazy,” Angela told Metro News. “I only can remember one or two times where she got out of her five-point harness previously. She somehow got out, adrenaline or whatever, and barefoot hiked up the embankment.”
Lexi was able to get someone to stop. She informed the driver of what happened, and the motorist was able to pull the 10-week-old baby out from the wreckage. He then went back to the road to ask another passerby for help with the mother.
The passerby happened to be a paramedic. Together, they were able to pull Angela from the wreckage, as well.
“It’s amazing and we’re just so glad she did that,” Angela said.
