13 Year Old Boy Saves Friends

courage CSI’m a sucker for feel good stories, especially these days when there seems to be so much wrong in the world.  I’m especially glad to write about heroes- no matter how old they are.

This past Sunday, two boys fell through ice when they were walking with a friend on Potowomut Pond in Rhode Island.  They were warned not to go onto the ice, but since one of the boys skates on the pond, he thought he knew the safest places on the ice to walk on.  As the other two boys neared the center, the ice began to crack and buckle, that’s when the first boy fell through the ice, and the second, Devan Cuinci tried to help and fell through as well.

Although he was afraid, Riley Beard knew he had to do something to help his friends, who by that time were struggling and screaming for help.
