10-year-old girl helps paramedics with injured woman

One young girl helped save the life of a deaf woman who was hurt in a car wreck, by sign language, after rescue workers couldn't communicate with her. Likewise, 10-year-old, Yesenia Diosadado was playing outside with her friends, when she heard an odd noise that caught her attention. Diosadado decided to investigate, and upon arrival, Diosadado noticed the woman involved in the crash was deaf, and was unable to tell the paramedics what was wrong.

Although Diosadado is not deaf, nor anyone in her family, her mother taught her, as well as her sisters sign language in case they ever needed to use it. In addition, Diosadado was able to tell the paramedics what happened to the woman, and where she wanted to be taken. On Monday in Lenexa, Kansas, Diosadado was presented with a certificate of appreciation and bravery medal for her help. Luckily, with the help of Diosadado, the woman who was injured in the crash has fully recovered.
