Random Act of Kid-ness: Saving Mom From a Dinner Explosion

This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us all the way from Kent, England, where 8 year old Ella Rake saved her mom from severe burns after a microwavable dinner exploded in her face. After the explosion, Ella vicky patmoreimmediately called for an ambulance, started a cold shower, and told her mom to wrap her burns in plastic wrap. The paramedics told Ella that she saved her mom from permanent scarring due to the care she provided. Ella said:

“We have just learnt about burns, so that’s how I knew what to do. When the ambulance arrived the man told my mum I had done the right thing.”
