Persistent 10-year-old’s Hunch Leads to Life-saving Rescue

Family Life - Kids

10yo Danny DiPietro hunch saves old womanOne more hour and the 80-year-old woman would have been dead from exposure, but thanks to a ten-year-old boy who wouldn't give up on his hunch that 'something was wrong', she was rescued from a freezing garage.

10-year-old Danny DiPietro and his dad were driving home from a hockey game in a Detroit suburb when Danny spotted what he thought was a dog out of the corner of his eye.

"It was late at night and super cold out and their garage was open and something just didn't feel right," Danny told 7 Action News.

Once he was home, Danny kept thinking something should be done about what he thought was a dog, so he asked his mom if she could go check it out.

His mother tried to assure him there was no need to worry, and he wandered out of the room. But he came back again to insist that there might be an animal danger.

In fact, it was Kathleen St. Onge who was in danger, after slipping on ice in her open garage.

Thanks to this wonderful young man and his parents! You are a blessing to humanity. (And yes, there are heartless people who do leave animals out in horrible weather.)

Exactly! (That's what I was thinking... ah, there could be pets left out.)
