A 6-year-old girl in southeast Michigan has been rescued from a home after posting photos on Facebook of her dead father and unconscious stepmother, reports the AP. Police in Mount Morris Township, just north of Flint, say a relative in Tennessee contacted them after seeing the pictures. Officers went to the home Thursday evening and found the man's body; a pit bull had apparently been gnawing on his face. The woman was taken to a hospital and authorities say she's listed in intensive care.
The child's "actions, we believe, actually saved a life," Mount Morris Township Police Chief Terence Green tells the Detroit Free-Press. "This 6-year-old went through a traumatic event—and she saved a life." Green says the adults appear to have overdosed on drugs. He credits the girl, now with her mother, for being resourceful and bright.
