A 4-year-old girl walked through thick snow to get help when her mum crashed her car after skidding on ice.
Averie Carrion walked 400m in -6˚C to get help after her mum’s truck skidded and overturned on ice in Granville, Iowa.
Quick-thinking Averie left the vehicle which contained her mum and baby brother and headed to a nearby farmhouse. She waited in the garage for the owners to come home, and told them her mum was dead and her brother was crying after the accident.
But Averie’s mum and brother were then rescued and taken to hospital with minor cuts, all thanks to little Averie’s efforts.
