Say what you want about social media, but this girl's father will be thanking it's existence for the rest of his life.

Brianna Vance and her dad, Gregory, were caught in a violent storm in West Virginia when a tree fell on their trailer trapping Gregory underneath.  The storm knocked out phone service so she couldn't call for help. Somehow she was able to get access to the internet where she posted a video on facebook asking for help.

"The lightning crashed and hit a tree by our porch and my dad’s almost dead. He needs an ambulance please. Please call one for us if you have a signal. We live in a yellow house, a trailer. Please."

The quick thinking 10-year-old saved her father's life with the post.  Shortly after the video went live someone called an ambulance and Gregory was pulled to safety. 

This has to be one of the most incredible stories I've ever heard/seen in my entire life.  She really is a hero.  Watch the full story below.
