Brianna Vance is 10 years old, but she’s already a boss! She lives in Logan County, West Virginia, USA, which was recently hit by a violent storm.


During the storm, her father and two of his buddies ended up getting trapped under a tree on the family’s front porch, after it was knocked down by a massive lightning strike. With a big-ass tree crushing her dad and his friends, the rest of the family began to panic.
The brutal storm had also knocked out all cell communication and the family doesn’t have a landline. That didn’t matter, because Brianna is a freakin’ genius and realized their wireless Internet connection was still up.
Being the boss she is, 10-year-old Brianna Vance went on Facebook to post a frantic video asking for help. With tears streaming down her face, she described the situation, “The lightning crashed and hit a tree by 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.”

The plea for help on Facebook was noticed and within an hour her dad and his friends were rescued. Her father suffered a broken collar bone and five broken ribs from the tree falling on top of him, but it could’ve been much worse if it hadn’t been moved in a timely manner!
Brianna’s dad was able to return home from the hospital for Father’s Day. She posted the following on Facebook about it, “I love you, dad, and I’m so happy you are home and happy to be your helper.”
There you have it. 10yo Brianna Vance from West Virginia is a boss and a real life hero at such a young age. Even Lt. Tim Granger from the Henlawson Fire Department agrees, “This is the real hero, that little girl, and I hope she gets recognized for her heroism.”
