Watch How This Teen Did The Unthinkable And Saved The 9-Year-Old Girl
9-year-old boy Addie Rodriguez was saved from a heartbreak when a senior from the Catholic High School in Texas, Matthew Garcia, came to rescue him.
This fourth grader was performing for his high school when the other fathers of the cheerleaders joined them on the field. As one of the other girls were raised on the shoulders of their fathers, Addie was standing alone. Addie’s father, Able Rodriguez, is an Air Force veteran who was serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, and he left just a couple of days before at the Travis Base in California.
Addie’s mother, Alexis Rodriguez, was helpless. “It was incredibly heartbreaking to see your child stand out there and be the only one without a father there, especially knowing why he is away. This is not just an absent parent. He is serving this country.”
Watching this heartbreaking moment before him, Matthew just couldn’t sit there and watch. “I ran from the bleachers here,” he told the reporters. “And I hopped the fence, got there, kneeled down, and said to her, ‘Are you all right?’”
The girl was about to burst into tears when Matthew lifted her up on his shoulders. “When I saw what was he doing my heart melted,” said her mother.
