Local teenager a heroGranite Falls girl saves child from car BY PAM STEVENS | EDITOR What you do when no one is looking shows your true character and acting on impulse to save someone else’s life is what makes a true hero.
Liberty Davis, a 13-year-old girl from Granite Falls was at Parrigoue Fields one evening a couple of weeks ago when she suddenly saw a toddler running in the parking lot.
“I thought to myself, ‘how could I see this little two-year-old get ran over right in front of my face,’ I just couldn’t do that. I would be the one that had to see this little kid die,” Davis said. “I didn’t hesitate, I just jumped right in the back of the car I wasn’t even thinking about the car, all I could think about is saving this kid.”
Davis’ mother, Crystal Davis, was shocked at what was happening but not surprised about her daughter’s quick reaction.
“Liberty is the type of person who is always happy to help anyone and I doubt she even thought twice before risking her own safety to help a little boy in danger,” her mom said.
After the boy’s babysitter realized what had happened, she fervently thanked Liberty for saving the boy. Imagining what could have happened without Davis there to rescue the tot.
“After I saved the little boy, the babysitter came and thanked me many times and she didn’t know what she would have done without me,” Davis said.
We all need people like Davis in our lives. She is a teenager that any community or family can be proud of. Davis is a true hero.
“We are very proud of her,” her mom said. “She is an amazing girl.”
