Averie Carrion, 4, From Iowa Tunnels Through Snow To Help Family

After a rollover accident on an icy road on Super Bowl Sunday, an Iowa mother was knocked unconscious. Her children were left scared in the backseat of the car with a caved-in roof.

When Jamie Carrion came to, she couldn't find her 4-year-old daughter Averie anywhere. So she made a frantic 911 call, the Today Show reports.

"No, no I can't see her, I can't feel her, I can't see anything!"

It turns out Averie had crawled out of the truck window, tunneled through a snowbank and walked a quarter of a mile to the Zenk family's farmhouse.

"I was diggin' a hole to help my mom and my brother."

The Zenks helped police to reunite the family promptly.
