Miesha Tate Helps Rescue Injured 6-Year-Old Girl from Mountaintop

Former UFC bantamweight champion Miesha Tate put her athleticism to real-world application on Sunday.

On a Labor Day Weekend hike on Mt. Charleston, Tate came across a family whose little girl had broken her arm at the top of the Mary Jane Falls hike on Mt. Charleston outside of Las Vegas.

“The mother asked her 6 year old daughter, ‘would you rather have me or her carry you down?’ Without hesitation (to my surprise) she quickly replied, ‘I want HER to carry me.’ We had to laugh. I preceded to carry the sweet little thing all the way to the bottom. Kai and I learned a lot about each other on the roughly 2-mile descent and it’s fair to say she inspired me. We made it all the way down without slipping or falling! We agreed we would both be strong for each other! Team work at it’s best!”

The little girl’s father also posted about the incident on Instagram:

“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.”
