Kicker – Remote rescue


MARY REICHARD, HOST: A teenager in New Hampshire saved a boy more than 800 miles away thanks to a social media app.

Caden Cotnoir was watching a TikTok live-stream of 12-year-old Trent Jarrett riding a four-wheeler in West Virginia, when something went wrong.

AUDIO: [ATV accident]

Mmm. Trent’s ATV rolled over and he was pinned underneath.

Caden told WMUR,

CADEN: It was pretty sad to hear. He was scared that he was not going to make it out.

That’s when Trent started yelling out numbers, the only numbers he could remember: his grandparent’s telephone number.

Caden was listening and made the call.

And after being trapped for about 20 minutes, Trent escaped with only cuts and bruises.

Caden’s family called it “an Easter miracle.”
