In Iowa Sunday night, a four year old girl was in a car accident with her infant brother and mother. The truck slipped off the side of the road and overturned. The four year old girl managed to get out of the truck and then walked a quarter of a mile through a foot of snow to a farmhouse. She then managed to get in the garage of the farmhouse where someone spotted her. She told them she thought her brother was hurt and her mom was dead. It turns out that both her mom and her brother only suffered minor injuries.
It is amazing to me how a four year old girl has the instincts to get out of the car which is overturned in a snowy ditch in the dark and somehow managed to find help. I still don't know why she did not knock on the door of the house, but she told police and reporters that she knew someone would find her in the garage. The girl was wet and freezing when the farmhouse owners found her.
