4-year-old walks through snow to find help

Posted:

GRANVILLE (KWWL) -- Sioux County officials say a 4-year-old girl walked a quarter of a mile through snow to get help for her mother and baby brother. 

Averie Carrion says she got only two scratches from a crash Sunday night off Highway 10 between Alton and Granville.  Her mother, Jamie, was headed home to Granville with Averie and her brother when their pick-up slid off the highway and rolled, coming to rest on its side. 

Jamie Carrion was trapped inside the truck cab and could not find her daughter. But Averie had left for a farmhouse to get help.  Summoned by Jamie Carrion's cell phone call, rescuers soon reunited the three at a nearby hospital, where they were treated and released.
