6-Year-Old Boy Saves Mom In Car Crash

car accident
Six-year-old Aaron Wright comes to the rescue after his mom's car crashes.

They were just driving down the road when mom Delores Dober accidentally drifted into the oncoming lane.  She swerved to avoid a truck, and her car skidded off the road.  When it finally came to a stop at the bottom of a snowy embankment, the car was upside down and Delores was hanging from her seatbelt, going in and out of consciousness.

Who should come to the rescue?  Her 6-year-old son Aaron Wright, who was sitting in the back seat.  Aaron got hold of his mother’s cell phone, scrambled out of the car, and called 911, according to a sheriff in Albany, NY.

The Albany Times-Union reports that Aaron, ” .. squeezed out of the back seat and trudged up the steep, slick incline that, to a young child, must have seemed as though it were a high peak of the Adirondacks.  Once he reached the summit, he flagged down passers-by who pulled up to the scene.”

Talk about a hero!  Both mom and son were treated and released from a local hospital.  Way to go Aaron!
