Sometimes we all wonder what we would do if we were in a situation where others depended on us as heroes.
Often we imagine going to a plate and doing what we have to do. Of course, sometimes it’s not as easy as it sounds. In particular, depending on the situation, you may be vigilant or unprepared to be in danger.
Fortunately for one couple and their dog, stranded on a hike on the Waimano Trail, Honolulu, 12-year-old David King is a resourceful young man who’s prepared for any eventuality
On Aug. 29, JD and Aimee ended up seven miles deep into that trail. It was dark, they had no water, no food and their 100 lb. dog, Smokey, was injured and unable to walk. They had not seen anyone for hours until they ran into 12-year-old David King. https://t.co/DZmVlDPdq5

Reportedly, David and his mother stumbled upon the aforementioned couple while walking the Waimano Trail.
Things could easily get worse as they got lost and had no food, no flashlights, no cell phones as their batteries ran out.
Further exacerbating the situation is the fact that their dog, Smokey,couldn’t go on. He was bleeding from his paws and was unable to continue.
But thanks to David and his training, this day was saved. The boy made a stretcher using a t-shirt and a branch of a nearby tree. According to reports, he recently learned how to make a stretcher in a first aid class for soldiers with a group of Boy Scouts.
Between the four of them, they were then able to use the stretcher to carry Smokey.
These stories are reminiscent of the old days when more importance was attached to organizations such as Boy Scouts.
