Girl uses Facebook to post emergency message
A quick-thinking West Virginia girl used social media to save her father's life.
"My dad's almost dead. He needs an ambulance please."
Ten-year-old Brianna Vance posted this plea for help after a tree fell on the family's home during a storm trapping her dad and two friends. The severe weather also knocked phone service but the wi-fi was still working.
"The lightning crashed and hit a tree on our porch and my dad's almost dead. He needs an ambulance please.. please call one for us if you have signal. We live in a yellow house."
Someone who saw her emotional Facebook post called 911. Brianna's dad was hospitalized with a few broken bones but he was back home in time to celebrate Father's Day.
