6-Year-Old Boy Saves His Grandfather's Life During Jet Ski Accident
Gram Flowers never imagined he'd actually have to use the emergency swim lessons he was taught. But when the 6-year-old was thrown off a jet ski with his grandpa he had to. He noticed that "Papa Carl" was floating in the water facedown and not moving. Gram, who has been taking emergency swim lessons since he was an infant, immediately swam to his grandpa and dragged him by the arms back to the jet ski.
The rest of Flowers' family, who had been working on their boat because of an engine problem, soon caught up to the pair when they saw Gram in drivers seat and Papa Carl on the back.
"At first, we thought it was so cute that Gram was pretending to drive," David Flowers, Gram's father, said. "We then realized something was wrong and got Carl, who was unable to move, onto the boat and called a boat ambulance."
Gram, however, didn't consider the rescue a big deal, in fact he didn't even tell his family about how he dragged his grandfather back to safety until afterward.
"He told us the story like it was nothing," David said. "He's a humble kid who doesn't like attention, but he has the biggest heart. He would've done it for anybody."
Doctors believe that Papa Carl suffered from a concussion and is now recovering at home.
