Woman Notices Girl Walking Barefoot On The Highway, Horrified When She Discovers Why

A young child in Canada is being celebrated as a hero tonight after she saved her family. Her mother crashed the car and was unconscious, but the little girl managed to get out of the wreck and get help.

Mom Angela Shymanski drifted off to sleep while she was driving with her 5-year-old daughter Lexi and her infant son in the car. The car went off the road and down an embankment.

Lexi woke up and heard her brother, still strapped into his car seat, crying. Angela was unconscious. The little girl managed to undo her car seat and crawl out. She made her way up the embankment and flagged down a motorist for help.

When Angela woke up, she was shocked to learn what Lexi had done. The young mom was also relieved when the stranger told her that her two children were safe at the top of the embankment.

The baby boy suffered from a brain bleed, but doctors believe he will recover with no permanent damage. Angela suffered a minor back and neck fracture but she's recovering. Lexi was barely scratched in the crash.

"Even now, a month and a half later, I still can't believe what she was able to do. [She] climbed up [40 feet] of a steep embankment. She was in bare feet," said Angela.

"I thought, 'What would Mommy say if she was awake ... Mommy would say go get help,'" said Lexi.
