    4-Year Old Pulls Little Sister From Wreckage After Car Crash

    Hero 4-year-old pulls little sister from wreckage after car crash kills their mother


    A 4-year-old girl in Washington state pulled her little sister from the wreckage of a car crash that killed their mother, then kept the two of them warm under a blanket in the chilly rain for six hours until a passing driver found them.


    State troopers said that the girls probably only survived because the older sister had the wherewithal to get them out of the car and cover them. The younger girl is 2. Both were hurt, NBC affiliate KING5 in Seattle reported.

    What a smart 4 yr old. Sad about their mom but I am so glad these little babies survived.

    From the OP link:

    “We’re lucky we had someone paying attention or we may not have found them for a long time,” Trooper Russ Winger, a spokesman for the Washington State Patrol, told The Times. “Hypothermia could have set in if they were found any later.”

    Both girls were taken to a hospital in Astoria, Ore., and the 2-year-old, who troopers said was seriously injured, was later flown to Portland.
    I hope they will be OK and the father has been able to get home to them!

    What a hero that 4 year old was, kudos. And the motorist who saw the damage to the tree and discovered the wreck and injured children, another hero.
