7 Year Old Boy Uses DS To Save Family's Life

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 until finally stopping.

Fortunately, Christopher’s father, Wayne, the 6 month old baby brother (Joseph) all survived. Meanwhile, Christopher unbuckled his own seatbelt and his 5 year old brother Dilon’s. All the while, using the light from his Nintendo 3DS to make his way around the car, leading up to freeing his unconscious mother, Kathleen.

His mom admitted to 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.
