This Proves That Kids Are Amazing
There is no doubt that kids are amazing but this story will blow you away. Earlier this month, a 10-year-old girl named Cara Jumper was out in the woods checking hunting traps with her 72-year-old grandfather Coy… when he suddenly had a stroke and fell into a pond.
Without hesitating, Cara dove in after him and pulled him out. But that’s just the beginning…
Coy was so out of it, he could barely walk. And his cell phone had fallen in the water, meaning they couldn’t call for help.
According to NY Daily News, Cara picked him up, had him lean on her, and basically CARRIED him a quarter mile to their car. Which wasn’t a small task, since he weighs about 230 pounds.
Then since he couldn’t drive, she got behind the wheel and drove three miles on back roads to get help.
Coy’s wife ended up driving him to the hospital, where his doctors found a small aneurism. He was released after recovering for six days, and says he doesn’t remember anything after hitting the water.
But after hearing the story, he has no doubt Cara saved his life. Meanwhile, she says it was the hardest thing she’s ever done, but DOESN’T consider herself a hero. Quote, “I just did what I had to do.”
