What a story!
A fourth grader named Bode Bierdneau is being hailed as a hero after he totally saved his father's life after a terrible snow-mobile accident!
And he's getting a lot of attention for it — especially where it counts: SCHOOL!!
The 9-year-old hero recently said:
“Because I saved my Dad, a lot of people were like ‘Wow! You saved your dad’."
The brave young boy was with his father around Lake Tahoe when his father seriously injured his leg after the snow-mobile trapped it underneath.
With no cellphone and no idea which direction was the fastest route for help, the kid from Marin County hopped on a snow-mobile and rode for MILES before finally finding someone with an emergency radio!
He then showed the rescuers where his dad was!
And thanks to his son - the dad is expected to make a full recovery! This is the BEST kind of story!
This kid will always be known as someone who rises to the occasion, and we need more like him!
Now that's a good tale for school!
