in #CASE you missed it… 10Year-Old Saves Mom During Roadway Emergency
When his mom had a seizure behind the wheel, this quick thinking kid grabs the wheel, turns on the hazards, and pulls mom’s foot of the gas pedal.
A few weeks ago, 10-year-old Cash Cooley saved his family from an emergency situation when his mom had a seizure while driving. The Morrison, Colorado boy saw the car swerving and realized what was happening, so he jumped up and took action.
The quick-thinking kid grabbed the steering wheel, turned on the hazard lights and even moved his mom’s foot off of the accelerator to slow the car down. The car did slow to about 10 mph, and that’s when a passerby opened the driver’s door and was able to push the brake to stop them.
Cash’s mom, Amy, says she was very happy he was there and knew what to do to save himself, his mom, and his six-year-old sister. Firefighters who responded to Cash’s 911 call say he’s a hero, which he says “makes me feel proud.”
Get this kid a cape, because he is SUPER!
