Calm kindergartner honored for saving her grandmother during storm

The heroic granddaughter is a good luck charm when a normal day at grandma’s turns into a life or death situation for this brave young girl.

It must have taken so much courage for Indigo to stay calm and present during a very scary time.

Indigo Goodin spends a lot of time with her grandmother, Belinda, and fortunately on this day she was with her.

“Mostly I love her. But the second thing is every time when I go there, she gives me a present,” said the 5-year-old.

The two were together Sunday.

But while grandma was taking a bath, a storm rolled through and knocked the power out. Belinda Summers, who suffers from COPD, was in total darkness.

“I didn’t know what I was going to do. I just could not get out of the tub. And the next thing I know Indigo walks in with a flashlight, “said Summers.

Belinda was close to passing out, but the quick-thinking kindergartner helped her out of the bath and down the hall to her oxygen tank.

“The most incredible thing was she was aware I was in trouble. I couldn’t holler out or anything. I was that petrified, “said Summers.

Staff at Genesis School heard about this miniature hero and decided to honor her.

A way to inspire her classmates and show what any of them are capable of doing. Her parents and great-grandmother are beyond proud.

“It’s just so amazing that Indigo stayed so calm after it all happened” said Kelli Goodin, Indigo’s Mother.

“I was overwhelmed. That if she hadn’t been there I really don’t if I would have made it. said Summers.

The family is making sure Belinda isn’t ever far from her oxygen again. And Indigo is off to celebrate another momentous occasion.

She turned 6 on Sunday.
