It takes a pretty brave and exceptional little girl to land in a scary situation and tap into her inner superhero.
Fortunately, Olivia Valli is definitely an exceptional little girl.
This feisty Australian 7-year-old ended up facing a situation that most adults would struggle to handle.
Despite being just a little munchkin, Valli didn’t even blink: She just did exactly what she needed to do to save her family.
Like the 10-year-old who saved his mom’s life during a seizure, Valli found herself in a situation where the grown-up in charge, her mom, was the one who needed the most help.
She kept her head after mom Amber got into a car accident — with Valli and her two younger brothers in the car with her.
Then, she stepped up to the plate and saved the day!
Olivia Valli looks just like any other angelic little 7-year-old, but she has composure and strength well beyond her years.
In early November 2016, Valli, her mom Amber, and her two young brothers were involved in a devastating car accident.
Amber Valli was knocked unconscious in the crash, and that’s when little Olivia stepped up to the plate.
The Valli family, from Australia’s Gold Coast, were driving early in the morning.
The family had just one car, so they all had to go to drop dad James off for a three-week shift, working deep in the outback.
On the way home, Amber lost control of the car on an unfamiliar country road.
The car rolled twice in the early morning hours, coming to a stop on its side off the shoulder of the road.
The car was totaled and Amber, in the driver’s seat, was knocked unconscious.
Little Olivia, suddenly responsible for her whole family, responded quickly and carefully.
Her two brothers, Mason, 3, and Flynn, 2, were strapped in the back in their car seats.
Olivia unbuckled her own belt and pulled them out one by one, taking them out of the car while they were still cradled in their seats.
Her uncle, describing her actions, called her a “a dead set little champion” for keeping her head.
Miraculously, all three children were completely unhurt, except for a few bruises and scrapes from their seat belts.
When paramedics arrived, most of their work was done, and they were able to turn their attention to Amber, who was much more seriously injured.
She was taken the hospital with a fractured skull, several fractured vertebrae, and lots of bruising.
Fortunately, it looks like Amber will be recovering just fine, with no permanent damage to her spine.
Now, the family is working hard to buy a new car to help the family get around, and they are celebrating Olivia’s bravery and heroism every day.
