10-Year-Old Black Girl From Indiana Honored For Saving Two People’s Lives

Aneres Bellefont

Nationwide — Aneres Bellefont, a 10-year-old African American girl from Indiana, has been hailed as a hero for saving two people’s lives. She was honored with an award by Henry County Sheriff John M. Sproles for her quick thinking that saved lives.

On January 8, Aneres called 911 after she found a man passed out in a car near her place. She also saw a lady knocked out near the car. She thought they weren’t breathing, and she couldn’t see any other adults around, according to 11Alive.

Amidst the situation, Aneres did not panic. She helped out the emergency personnel by telling them exactly where to find the two adults. She stayed on the line, keeping dispatchers updated on the condition of the 2 adults.

When the medics arrived, they used Narcan on both of them before rushing them to Henry Community Health hospital. One of the adults even ended up in the ICU.

Meanwhile, the Sheriff’s Office put up a post on social media, saying, “Aneres, you are a true hero! Two adults are alive today because you courageously took control of the emergency situation you found yourself in. You did all of the right things!”
