You’ve got 10 seconds to think about the latest piece of news you’ve heard or read in which any title in the Grand Theft Auto franchise was considered the reason for the happening of a good, heroic act. Well, you can probably think about that for an entire hour and you won’t remember that, since I really doubt any such news exists. However, now is the perfect time for a change, since GTA was linked with a heroic deed of a girl who saved her parents and siblings following a really nasty car crash.
Long story short: the Norris family (a total of five people) was en route to visit their relatives when their Jeep swerved off the road, hitting an object that made it flip four times before stopping on its side. With both parents losing their glasses and blind because of the dark night, it was an 11 year-old girl who saved the day by pulling out through the broken rear window every member and moving them to a safe zone. Pretty cool, huh?
And if you wonder what’s the deal with Rockstar’s franchise, Karen Norris, the mother of the 11-year-old, explains, via My Web Times: “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.”
Ok, so, everything sounds really great, we’re happy that GTA will finally be remembered as a potential life saver and everything, but there is still one huge fact we should take into account: the GTA player is an 11-year-old girl! In other words, a person which should not play the game at all! And that’s something we should be scared about: grown-ups ignoring some simple rules that would make anybody’s life easier. On the other hand, maybe the girl wouldn’t have started the entire rescue process if she wouldn’t had played Grand Theft Auto. A tough call, let me tell you that!
