A seven-year-old girl has rescued her two younger siblings who were trapped after their car crashed.

The girl and her two younger siblings were passengers in their mother’s car when it crashed on the side of the road west of Kilcoy, in regional Queensland about 7.45am on Tuesday morning, shares Daily Mail.

It’s believed the car veered off the road in wet conditions.

The car left Gregors Creek Road before flipping and landing on its roof, leaving the mother – who was the driver of the car – trapped in the vehicle and suffering chest injuries.

LifeFlight Critical Care Doctor Matthew Mulkeen told The Courier Mail the seven-year-old girl had managed to free herself from the wreckage before crawling back in to rescue her siblings.

The mother, who was left trapped inside the vehicle, needed to be cut out of her seat by emergency services when they arrived on the scene shortly after the crash.

The two younger siblings, aged two and three, were not injured in the crash because they were strapped into their seats.

The mother, 28, was flown to Nambour Hospital by a Sunshine Coast RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter.

She suffered suspected chest and arm injuries and possible spinal injuries, but her injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

The children were also taken to Nambour Hospital by ambulance to be further assessed.

Investigations into the crash are ongoing.

What a very brave young girl!

  • Hope everyone is doing well, what an amazing heroine.


  • So young yet so brave to go back into the car and save her 2 sisters. I’m glad they’re okay and hope that Mum is okay.


  • A bad accident and a very brave girl who managed to save the others. She probably would have helped her Mum out had she not been trapped.
    It proves the necessity of having young children in the appropriate safety seats etc, their harnesses properly adjusted and their seats anchored correctly. A big majority of little children hurt in accidents is them not being restrained correctly.


  • What an amazing story. Not many children that age would be able to think what to do in an emergency and it is absolutely beautiful that she wanted to protect her family.


  • I am so pleased this did not end in a worse way. What a brave sibling in such a scary and chaotic situation, to protect and save her sisters. I hope they all recover well and quickly.


  • What a brave little girl !!


  • a real little hero, so brave!


  • Very brave of her, and good on the mum for having made sure her kds were secured.


  • What a brave thing to do, the car could have easily caught on fire!


  • Very good on her to act immediately!
    I hope the mother will recover soon!!


  • How very frightening for all involved. I hope their mother makes a full recovery, and I’m glad the children were all okay.


  • She is only young but knew what do! Good on her!


  • Children truly are amazing sometimes! Kudos to this girl
