UFC fighter Miesha Tate came to the rescue of a family whose six-year-old daughter broke her arm while on a hiking trip in Nevada.
Tate posted on her Facebook that she was hiking along Mt. Charleston near Las Vegas, Nevada, when she came across a mother struggling to carry her daughter, Kai, down the mountain.
When Tate learned the girl had broken her arm, she offered to carry her down. The mother asked Kai her preference, and, according to Tate, she quickly chose Tate.

Tate also shared a video on Instagram of Kai thanking Tate for helping her down the mountain.
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
While a broken arm isn’t life-threatening, the situation could have worsened if the mother wasn’t able to carry Kai down the mountain. Luckily, Tate was there to ease the burden.
