After surviving a car crash an 11 year old boy named Lachlan performed CPR on his critically injured father, then ran 3km (nearly 2 miles) barefoot through total darkness to get help.
Lachlan “Lochie” Nally, 11, and his father Matthew, 36, of Koolunga, were in a crash on the Red Hill to Koolunga Rd in South Australia just after 12am today.
Mr Nally was critically injured.
Lochie suffered minor injuries, including seat belt burns to his neck, two lumps on his head and a graze to his lower back but ran 3km without shoes to the Koolunga Hotel to get help.
Police Chief Inspector Graham Goodwin praised the boy, saying he could be nominated for a bravery award.
“As you can imagine he’s been in a very serious collision so that’s distressing in itself.
“He’s performed CPR on his father and he got the courage to walk 3km down the track to raise the alarm. That to me is one of the most heroic acts I’ve seen.” (Source)
That’s one brave and resourceful kid.
