I have my little sister a hairline fracture to her right hand, between the thumb & first finger.

That being said, this little girl is indeed a img1.fark.net

"I love her more than anything," Anaiah told Channel 2's Tom Jones of her five-year-old-sister, Camry.

Oh sweet FSM. Camry. Great.

Anaiah said it was raining and her sweatshirt hood was covering her eyes as she and her sister crossed the road. The girls' mother, Andrea Taylor, witnessed her older daughter's act of bravery from the porch of their home, where she watches the girls catch the bus each morning.

Because FSM forbid she should walk her 5-year-old across the farking screet herself.

umm, absolutely nothing, given that I'm an only child.

Good for this kid though, for having the guts a lot of us might not.
 
2011-03-24 11:54:43 PM
Great use of the tag.

Awesome girl.
 
2011-03-25 01:47:19 AM
Let's see...

When I was nine my little sis often tried to stab me with a large knife. My bedroom door had deep gouges in it from trying to keep her at bay. After a few weeks I just gave up and locked her out of the house when mom was at work. Every farking summer was hell having to babysit the evil little biatch.

I'm sure most little sisters aren't like that.

Cause having a 9 year old walk a 5 year old across the street is such a bad idea. As evidenced by the tens of thousands of times it happens each day without incident.
 
2011-03-25 05:57:47 AM
What did I do? That's our special secret. And if she told anyone then I'd be in a lot of trouble and she'd have to go away from Mummy and Daddy and everybody would be very sad.
 
2011-03-25 06:01:14 AM
Taylor told Channel 2. "I seen my daughter kinda snatch my 5-year-old back, and if it wasn't for that, my 5-year-old would have ... I don't think she would have made it."

Not meaning to troll, but all I could think when I read this was thank god someone is going to school.

/girl is definitely worth the hero tag though

"As she took a breath, my first thing was, 'Thank God.'"

Yes, thank "God" because instead of taking 2 little girls, he only got half of one. Thanks, indeed.
 
2011-03-25 06:15:43 AM
And what did you do for your sister when you were 9?

Pimped her out for lunchmoney.

Anaiah might also not be alive if it weren't for bus driver Loretta Berryman. Berryman pulled over immediately and started performing CPR on Anaiah, who wasn't breathing. "I instructed her mom to hold her head while I gave mouth-to-mouth, chest compressions," Berryman told NBC News. "As she took a breath, my first thing was, 'Thank God.'"

You're not supposed to do mouth to mouth. It's been shown to be ineffective.

What did I do for my sisters? Allowed both those two biatches to live and subsequently grow into horrid creatures, for which the world has never forgiven me and ensured my first class window seat on the flight to Hell.
 
2011-03-25 06:24:44 AM
I look both ways before crossing the street. Where's my hero tag?

/Seriously, though, good on her. Well done.
 
2011-03-25 06:32:45 AM
You often hear the word hero being thrown around where it doesn't really fit....like if someone sees someone choking and the goes over and saves them.... great yes, but heroic no. But here "HERO" really fits because this girl put her own life on the line in order to save someone else. Quick thinking. Wish they could have saved the leg and kidney.
 
2011-03-25 06:40:51 AM
Something... something in my eye over here. Very touching, and a definite hero. Great kids.

"Taylor recently lost her job and her car. The community held a BBQ to raise funds for Anaiah's medical bills and renovations needed to make her house handicap accessible"


Disgraceful medical care in the US. Call yourself a civilised nation.
Don't make me laugh!

Note: Don't be poor and sick in America!
 
2011-03-25 06:42:32 AM
It's kind of disturbing with this headline book-ended by two links about child sexual abuse on the main page.
 
2011-03-25 06:46:34 AM
Someone so young and dedicated; A true hero if ever there was one.

Boy that takes me back...Of course I was the one brutally slamming my sisters head against the wall over some such claptrap. *smokes pipe*
 
2011-03-25 06:50:31 AM
touched her. Hey.... I was 7.
 
2011-03-25 07:01:15 AM

vegasj: touched her. Hey.... I was 7.


Somehow saying you were 7 doesn't mean a thing and yet explains everything at the same time. That's eerie...
 
2011-03-25 07:12:05 AM
Nothing. Why, what have you heard?

>_>
 
2011-03-25 07:21:11 AM
I did anything my sister wanted or I would rue the day. For what it's worth though, she wouldn't let anyone else pick on me, that was her job.

Agreed - what kind of a "developed" / "civilised" country charges children for emergency medical care? It's totally farked.

My brother Ed saved my other brother Daniel from choking when he was nine.

'rue the day'... who talks like that?

That reminds me, when I was 9 I gave my older sister all of my saved allowance money so she could buy "The Doors 13" album. She never paid me back, what would be the compounded interest on $6.50 over 40 years?

You get very angry about nothing. You should probably see a therapist.
 
2011-03-25 08:00:37 AM
Oh, and Camry was a name before it was a car.

Although, I'm pretty sure it's a derivative of Cameron, which is a boy's name, but whatever.
 
2011-03-25 08:03:25 AM
I didn't call her Camry or Maxima or F150 and we all spoke English.

Thanks for asking.

better to be a helicopter parent, right?
My 5yo walked himself to kindergarten, 2 blocks. He is now 7 and walks his younger brother to kindergarten.
 
2011-03-25 08:30:39 AM
Eh...I let my little sister look at my new bike.

That and as much of a spazz as she was, she wasn't too dumb to look both ways before crossing the Gahddamned street!

/What? It had to be said...
 
2011-03-25 08:47:32 AM
she had to be a democrat. A republican would never help others.
 
2011-03-25 08:48:51 AM
YAY for the brave little girl with the made up name who saved a japanese car.
 
2011-03-25 08:50:21 AM
When I was 9? Probably gave her a charlie horse.
 
2011-03-25 08:50:35 AM
"'rue the day'... who talks like that?"

It's archaic language, used to emphasize the seriousness of my daring to cross her back then.
 
2011-03-25 08:57:17 AM
I went to court and got my sister's name changed to something not ridiculous
 
2011-03-25 08:58:50 AM
This story will keep me from wining about my troubles, today.

Also increases my appreciation of the way my 11 and 9 year olds help my 5 year old.

Also picked up a few jerks for the ignore list.

Win-Win-Win.

Try reading that article a bit more carefully. That is not at all what that article said. The article said that a person trying to teach an inexperienced person over the phone took too long for both mouth-to-mouth and chest compression and was ineffective. They found that it was more important to make sure that the unconscious person received proper chest compressions.

CPR is perfectly effective when performed by a person who has been trained.

Dude...from the article you linked:

"For regular lay instructions, teaching CPR including ventilations offers the best chance of survival for all cardiac arrest victims, especially those of asphyxial arrest and children."


Your reading comprehension has been shown to be ineffective.

As a CPR instructor certified from the American Heart Association. Currently there is chest compression only scenarios being taught, but go through a certification course first before commenting on this technique. Considering the age and situation the bus driver is the second hero of this story. It's very dangerous to criticize someone's CPR administration publicly without knowing the whole situation and having all the knowledge associated with it.

This is Fark. If you're not going to laugh at their comments they probably don't want you reading them anyway. You'd only post something stupid in rebuttal, so it saves them time having to read it.
