An injured woman was trapped in her wrecked car, and paramedics were having trouble communicating with her until a young girl came along to see what was happening.
Yesenia Diosdado, 10, realized the woman was deaf and immediately began to sign with her, asking if she was hurt.
On Monday morning at her school paramedics presented Yesenia with a certificate of appreciation and a medal for her bravery.
Captain Chris Winger said the woman was given the proper treatment for her injuries much faster because of Yesenia’s help.
