5-Year-Old Boy With Autism Helps Rescue Man

Chase Faulingham from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia was born on the autism spectrum but that clearly does not affect his ability to spot an emergency and the need for help. Chase and his grandfather Thomas Murray were out one day for a walk when Chase had heard a faint cry for help, Chase called out saying "stop" and after a few moments Thomas continued on thinking he heard nothing of importance. Chase called out again saying "No Poppa Jim. Listen. Listen. Help." and listening closely his grandfather finally heard the faint cries for help of a man injured in a snow bank. The two climbed over the snow bank and called for paramedics. Chase is now being recognized for his heoric actions at home and in his community, showing great progress within himself.
