Parents can do incredible things to save their children when their lives are in danger and a pregnant mother in Missouri was fortunate enough to be one of them when she got herself and her two-year-old son from their sinking SUV. Heather Vaden and her son, Bently, were driving when she swerved to avoid what she thinks was a dog in the road and their SUV ran into ditch, bounced up, hit a fence, and then landed in water.
As soon as they started sinking, the quick-thinking Missouri mama got to work, taking off her seat belt, unbuckling Bently from his car seat, and searching for something to break the window with. When she didn’t find anything, she kicked the rear window out.
Heather swam back to shore with her toddler and they found a nearby house to call for help. Bently is just fine and mom only suffered a broken arm and she plays down how tough it was to save her son, saying, “I just did what I had to do to get him out.”
