Denise Sanchez was enjoying a Father’s Day celebration with her family and five kids in Indiana at Lieber State Recreation Area when a terrible incident happened.
As Sanchez was using the restroom when a tree fell on their campsite. That tree hit her 8-year-old son Robert. That’s when older brother 15-year-old Neithan Morales stepped up because he saw Robert was trapped. He rushed toward the tree and was able to help free Robert from the heavy limbs. Following his heroic rescue, Robert was transported by the local fire department to a Children’s hospital for treatment of a broken arm.
While Sanchez felt the impact of the tree hitting the ground and did not witness the incident, she told WISH-TV that she hopes it serves as a reminder to others, “That storm [on Saturday night] was huge. The wind was hard. Most of the tents had flooded, but I didn’t expect it to fall the next day. Camping can be so fun and, in a moment’s notice, anything can change.”
