Pull up a chair, Mom and Dad. We’d like to give you some info about how to bring your kids to the table for this year’s Night of Conversation: Facing Addiction Over Dinner on Nov. 15.

In 2009, two British moms lifted a 1.1-ton truck off a boy who was run over in the street; he survived. In 2012, a 22-year old woman lifted a car off her father after it fell off a jack while he was underneath, rendering him unconscious; she saved his life.

In 2016, a 19-year-old girl lifted a burning truck off her dad, freeing him, before jumping in the blazing vehicle and driving it out of the garage to save their house too.
