Girl saves her father by posting on Facebook
June 18 , 2014
A West Virginia girl was smart enough to save her father, who got trapped along with his two friends when a lightening-struck tree fell on their porch.
The 10-year-old girl managed to get online since there was no landline around. "The lightening crashed and hit a tree by our porch and my dad's almost dead. He needs an ambulance please. Please call one for us if you have a signal. We live in a yellow house, a trailer," she posted on Facebook.
Reports suggest that firefighters arrived their home soon enough and Gregory Vance was taken to the hospital with broken bones. "If she would have been there a little bit longer and it would have hit her," he said. "The pain of burying one of my children, I could not bear that, but I can handle this pain."
