BERNE — Once Nikki Dober's car came to a rest on its roof in the woods 50 feet below Joslyn School Road, the only part of her son she could see were his shoeless size 2 feet.
Standing in the snow in his socks outside the driver's side window, 6-year-old Aaron Wright told his mother he was going to kick in the cracked glass and pull her to safety.
"I told him 'No!'" Dober said. "Then he ran up the hill to get help, but I didn't really want him to do that either. He said he was OK, but I wasn't sure. I could only see that the accident had knocked his shoes off his little feet."
Seconds after the crash, Aaron quickly wiggled out of his booster seat, reached over and unbuckled his mother. But Dober was still stuck.
