Miesha Tate came through in the clutch.
On Sunday, the former UFC bantamweight champion was hiking Nevada's Mt. Charleston when she ran across a six-year-old girl, Kai, who suffered a broken arm while walking the trail. With Kai's mother struggling, Tate scooped the young girl up and carried her down the over two-mile trail to safety, where Kai was then able to be taken to the hospital.
Both of Kai's parents took to social media to thank Tate for her act of kindness.
Such a crazy labor day weekend for our family but ended in such an amazing and beautiful way. My poor Kai broke her arm at the top of the Mary Jane Falls hike at Mt Charleston. So @mommapook and I basically had to carry her down miles ahead. To our rescue and assistance came the amazing @mieshatate the UFC fighter. She offered to help us carry her down the mountain. Such an amazing and humble person to have met. Our family cant thank you enough for all the help. You saved us easily hours of hiking and helped us get her to the hospital sooner. Thank you again #mieshatate
What a crazy, eventful, day! It started out as a fun hike up Mary Jane Falls, with the family, ended with Kai breaking her arm at the top of the mountain.. I'm SO beyond thankful for @mieshatate carrying her all the way down the mountain, there's no way I would have been able to do it myself. Miesha, you are a true life saver and I can't thank you enough for helping us out today! Kai is your newest #1 fan
Kai even sent Tate a special thank you message, which Tate posted to social media along with a retelling of the day's events.
Tear jerker! Meet Kai the sweet little girl that kept me company down the mountain side, very upbeat despite her broken arm. And I just have to say this was one of the most rewarding days of my athletic career. And I also want to make a point that I have been told many times that I am "too buff" or "manly" that I should stop lifting weights, that it's "gross" and not attractive for a woman. I am so happy I never listened to the limitations others wanted to put on me and I hope that our youth knows that don't have to conform. That strength and beauty come from within! #BeStrong #BeCapable #BeWhatYouWant #NoRegrets #JustLove #PayItForward #GiveBack #Inspire
This isn't the first time Tate's quick thinking has saved the day.
Back in 2014, Tate came to the rescue of longtime boyfriend and fellow UFC fighter Bryan Caraway's mother while vacationing in Mexico. Caraway's mother, Chris, was in the midst of a potentially fatal asthma attack when Tate sprayed Chris' inhaler into her own mouth and gave the elderly woman mouth-to-mouth, saving Chris' life with some clever thinking in the clutch.
