The woman on the floor of the garage was 80-year-old Kathleen St. Onge, who took a tumble after slipping on ice that fell off her car. "So I ran back called my husband. He ran up there with a blanket. Got my next door neighbor, and then was on the phone with 911," explained Dawn.

Wow. I'm honestly impressed that the woman purely laid the gratitude for her being found and rescued on the little boy responsible without resorting to saying that 'God had sent him' or the likes as is usually the case.

Wow, way to go little Paramedic man.

you know what 10 year old little boys like when they save some geriatric's life? Cash... they like cash.

I know it is fun to bag on those horrible commercials, but Life Alert has helped my grandmother twice, once when her hip replacement failed and she couldn't stand up from her kitchen table and once when she fell outside.  It is a very useful piece of technology for older folks living alone.

She should reward him with a cup of hot cocoa and a blowjob.
 
2014-01-30 02:56:17 PM
Good thing he doesn't live next to this guy.

Impressive job, kid; kudos on following through with your gut feelings.

Of course it's a good device, which is why the commercials are so funny. You don't need to overact and dramatize something so obviously useful. Imagine if say birth control pills were advertised the same way as the infomercial crap. It would be fraking hilarious.
 
2014-01-30 02:59:10 PM
That's awesome - not just that he noticed, but that he followed up and wouldn't let it go.
 
2014-01-30 02:59:12 PM
So she sees the lady on the ground in distress in the garage, and she goes home to get her husband before she helps the woman?
 
2014-01-30 02:59:38 PM
If something doesn't look right, report it.

The worst that can happen is that you are mistaken and nothing is wrong.

The best is that you save someones life just like this kid did.

Too may people these days just walk by and ignore everything just like this mother did until the kid persisted.

If only there was a small device that could easily be carried around and used for contacting people with a similar monthly fee as life alert. One day...

While I do think in the next 15-20 years, even senior citizens will be carrying smartphones, my grandma can barely work a regular telephone anymore, much less a smartphone. The Life Alert is just one button and a speaker. Believe me, it's a much better option than trying to get grandma to use a cellphone.

Hopefully he's not discouraged when she dies 6 weeks from now.
And hopefully he can spin this into an Fox crime drama: Danny DiPietro 10-year old psychic.

Of course we are reading what was reported, not necessarily what actually happened.   They responded to the hunch by taking their dog out for a walk past the condo in question.  I would guess it was only two or three doors down or they would have drove.  Likely, the boy stayed with the old woman and momma ran home and yelled in the house for her husband.  It's not like she likely went out walking with a load of blankets anyway.  She had to go home anyway, and she probably could not pick the old lady up, nor should she have tried.  Just possibly everything was done the best way it could have been done despite our natural knee-jerk desire to paint everyone else a farkup in order to feel better about ourselves.

Government lawsuit and charges forthcoming. He stepped out of bounds and acted without Official License, Sanction or Permission. Also, his school lunch account is empty. Big fines await you little hero. Big fines.

Smartphones: require sharp vision, steady hands
LifeAlert: press a button

Maybe she's smart enough to see that God's the one that tried to kill her.

I'm trying to find something to be snarky about... but no one attributed the rescue to god, no one said it was a miracle, no one is asking for money... it's a just a 10 year who thought something was wrong so they checked and saved a lady's life. Good job little dude.

No.
My grandmother has one of those jitterbug phones, theres a "call 911" button right on the phone. She has Alzheimer and still manages to use it fine.
The monthly charge life alert charges is hilariously over priced in the age of cell phones. I suppose the system has its place, but not at cell phone monthly bills level of pricing.

The LifeAlert system has fall sensors built into the pendant, so if the wearer falls and is unconscious, it will automatically trigger a call to the call center. Also, it can be networked with fire and (I think) security sensors. Cell phones don't do that.

Now anytime the kid tries to get his mother to believe something and she's arguing, he can pull the "last time you doubted something I said, I was right and it saved a woman's life."

The new Life Alert devices have fall detection too so they don't even have to press the button. I'm not sure how it can tell the difference between a fall and accidentally jarring the device but it's pretty nifty.

I need a clever retort for "God bless you."  Maybe, "The devil made me do it." ?? Not original, tho.
