Random Act of Kid-ness: Braving a Snowstorm to Rescue Peers

Alexi Catelli

This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us from the Canadian province Manitoba, where 13 year old Alexi Catellier walked through a snowstorm to find help for 24 of his fellow students who were stranded in a bus. Their bus got stuck in the snow and was stuck for over 5 hours during the snowstorm. Alexi not only calmed the other students down and melted snow into water when they got thirsty, but he also left the bus in search of help. Luckily he was able to find a man who could notify local rail workers of the trapped bus. Alexi said:

“It was definitely nerve-wracking …You have to keep the kids calm, because otherwise the bus driver won’t be able to do his job.”

What an act of bravery! Read more about this story here.
