Christopher Miszkowiec is a 7 year old boy whom not too long ago was involved in quite the car accident, when his family was driving late at night on a country road near Heathcote, Victoria, when they hit a kangaroo, crashed, and rolled multiple times before finally stopping.
Fortunately, Christopher’s father, Wayne, rescued the 6 month old baby, Joseph. Meanwhile, Christopher unbuckled his own seatbelt and his 5 year old brother Dilon’s. All the while, he was using the light from his Nintendo DS to make his way around the car, leading up to freeing his unconscious mother, Kathleen.
His mom admitted that she was originally growing tired of her son’s constant playing of the DS, but ever since his heroic actions with thanks to Nintendo’s handheld, she has become a supporter of the device and is more than happy to give her son anything he wants. 🙂 I don’t know about you, but this is just the thing the world needs to hear now and then, for the people out there who say that nothing good comes from video games.
Go Christopher, you’re the man!
