10-Year-Old Drags Her 230-Pound Grandfather to His Car After He Suffers a Stroke

Cara and Grandpa

When I was a kid, I pretty much just did kid stuff.  I tried to eat candy, I played in the yard, and I didn’t have to do anything that you’d qualify as “responsible.” Heck, even now I pretty much still eat candy and goof around on the Nintendo.  And then I hear stories like this one, and I’m thinking, “Wow.  This person has done more in one day that I did all year!”According to WISTV / NY Daily News, earlier this month, a 72-year-old man in South Carolina had a stroke and fell into a pond.  His 10-year-old granddaughter, Cara, dove in after him without hesitating and pulled him out.  But that’s just the BEGINNING of the story.  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.  So 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.”

Here’s the video from WISTV: – Columbia, South Carolina |

Jeez, kid!  At least this is a story that proves that not all kids are just sitting around on cell phones, doing the texting.  Every now and then you hear about a little hero! Way to make me feel like a lump of lazy, though.  Her parents must be so proud!

Accidentally yours,
