Hiking can be a fun leisurely activity, a chance to get out and see nature, or even a routine way of exercising. Typically it is a peaceful and pleasant experience, but like with all things, there are sometimes dangerous animals, poor weather conditions, and of course, accidents. That is exactly what happened to one young lady and her mother, but fortunately for them, they had a guardian angel in the form of a complete stranger.

A mother and her daughter were hiking on a trail in Oregon when the mom fell down a steep incline. Thankfully, Taylor Root was hiking along a narrow trail when he heard a faint cry for help in the distance. When he raced toward the sound, Root saw the young woman holding on to her mom. Root used all his strength to hoist the mom back on the trail.
