Random Act of Kid-ness: Taking the Wheel to Save Great Grandma’s Life

This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us from Golden, CO, where 10 year old Gryffin Sanders saved his great grandmother’s and brother’s lives when his grandmother lost consciousness at at the wheel. Gryffin first tried to wake up his great grandmother, but then decided to try to maneuver the car to the side of the road. His dad said:

“It was all him and he made a very wide decision at a very critical moment and I couldn’t be a prouder father.”

Gryffin said he learned driving skills by playing Mario Kart. We are so proud of Gryffin for using a skill he learned elsewhere in the real world to save his family from a disaster. You can read more about this story here.

As always, let us know if you know a kid who has done a Random Act of Kid-ness, and we might feature her or him next week!
