Grand Theft Auto Helps Preteen Rescue Family From Crashed Car

Kotaku writes: "While we've seen countless story regarding children using Grand Theft Auto as their inspiration to do wrong, it's extremely rare that we see news about GTA being cited as a cause for good. It happened on August 27th around 9pm, as the Norris family of five was heading to Diamond, Illinois to visit relatives. Their 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee swerved off the road, hitting a guardrail and flipping four times before coming to a stop, caving in the roof and smashing out the back window. With her mother hanging upside down and her father pinned against the steering wheel, 11-year-old Audrey Plique climbed out of the back window and helped her parents and two younger siblings escape the car. The motivation for her heroic act, according to her mother Karen Norris?

'She just knew, from playing 'Grand Theft Auto.' She saw on there that when a car rolls over, it can blow up. She knew that could happen to us'"

but yea knowing that a car blows up when flipped from playing gta gave the kid adrenalin knowing that that could happen to her family so yea i say that gta played a positive role right there.

She probably played the game on the 360. 360 fans actually go out side and help people unlike fat droids who just sit there and EATTTTT.

That truly was a sweet little story. It sure did put me in a good mood. I'm glad everything worked out fine and nobody got seriously injured or killed.

Ya I agree. To bad they'll never run a postive story about games in the news like this one

Yes it has Infinte Unfloppery,the PS3 saves lives while the 360 burns down homes and takes lives.I am confident that the 360 is responsible for the car going up in flames in the first place,but the family did'nt want to admit that they had a 360 in the car knowing how much shame they would suffer if the public found out.
