A father got knocked out cold as he was tearing down an old shed in his mother’s home. His four kids witnessed the whole thing and had to save him.
Matt Gannaway and his four children were in his mother’s backyard trying to tear down the shed. They were almost done with the project when things went wrong.
Matt said, “We had it almost all of the way torn down. We were just waiting for it to fall the rest of the way.”
Knowing how dangerous things could get, Matt gave his oldest son who is 13, his cell phone and asked them to call for help if things went wrong. He told Ethan to call 911 if anything bad happened.
When the shed fell, it bounced and pinned Matt to the floor. The crash knocked him unconscious.
The kids, Ethan, Peyton, Addison and Kaidan hurried towards their unconscious dad. Two of the kids were able to lift the shed long enough while the others pulled their daddy out from underneath.
“I think the adrenaline kicked in because the roof is several hundred pounds,” Matt said, amazed that they could summon the strength to do that.
He was certainly very proud of his kids. “They’re great children. They were all there to help. Even the 5-year-old was helping,” he said.
