Hero Mom On Jet Ski Rescues 4 Children Trapped Inside Of A Burning Boat In The Middle Of The Lake

A mother’s love is like no other, and that’s not just one of those things people say. It’s a fact. Moreover, being a mother means to love all children as your own. Need proof? We’ve got it. Certain things happen when we least expect. Robyn Brake was fully enjoying her Saturday at Dallas' Lake Ray Hubbard.
The woman was riding on her jet ski on a Saturday when she saw black smoke billowing from a nearby boat.
Relaxation turned to panic as the mom-of-four steered her jet ski toward the boat and realized there were children on board. When she was almost there, the boat burst into flames.
Brake said it was one very scary moment:
“After it first exploded, I knew that it was going to engulf very, very fast. Next thing I know, I go to the front of the boat, and the mother is holding her 6-week-old baby over the boat screaming, ‘I have a baby! Help! Help! Help!’”
Brake said she approached the boat and stood on the seat of her jet ski to pick up the baby and a toddler. The brave woman carried them to her friend's boat, where there were other family members, including Brake's daughter, Autumn.
"I told my daughter, 'I’ll be right back. I’ll be right back. I promise...' I prayed to God that I would make it back. I just kept saying, 'God, please protect me. Please protect me.'"
Robyn went straight back to the burning boat, not once, but twice.
She helped save 4 children’s lives! Game wardens in Texas stated that there were 10 people on board, including 4 children. Even though the boat sank, everyone aboard survived.
The woman and her friend also used a first aid kit to treat burns that the guys on the board received when they had been trying to get it fixed.
Although this brave mother got the “STAR OF DFW” award from local radio hosts, she admitted that she:
"did what every other mom would do if they saw a family in distress with their children!”
For us, however, this amazing woman is a hero who deserves the utmost respect and recognition!
