Kali Collins is just 10 years old but this week she has been making headlines for her incredible bravery that helped save her and her mother’s lives. Collins’ mother was driving along just this week when she suffered a major diabetic attack, thanks to Kali’s quick thinking though they and the entire family onboard survived what could have been a catastrophic afternoon.
Kali apparently realized shortly after her mother started driving that something wasn’t right. The van they were riding in was apparently out of control and driving on the wrong side of the road. Kali quickly took control of the van and proceeded to call her father and then 911 to get help. The quick thinking and quick reaction by this young girl was credited with saving the lives of everyone in the van that day.
Paramedics and emergency personnel have all agreed that Kali is in fact responsible for saving her and everyone else’s lives that day. Diabetic attacks happen frequently while driving and rarely do those affected fare very well in the endeavor. If Kali had not been in the front seat along side her mother that day they would likely never survived. This is a truly heartwarming story that shows just how much a small difference can make in the big picture of life, especially in the case of a medical emergency. Kali Collins is a true hero at only 10 years old thanks to her bravery and heroism this week.
