After his father got pinned under an overturned snowmobile in Lake Tahoe, Calif., Bode Beirdneau sprang to action. “I tried to dig him out as fast as I could, but my fingers got numb,” he said. With no GPS or cell reception, the 9-year-old decided to look for help. “It was a lot of pressure on me. I didn’t know which way to go.” He walked for miles in the snow before tracking down a tour group, who radioed for help. His dad was airlifted to a hospital, where he had surgery for a broken leg. Asked if he knew he’d been heroic, Bode responded, “Um, yeah.”
