Accidents happen... and when they do, some people react differently than others when panic sets in. Many children and teenagers have reacted calmly when panic-filled situations occured like a fire. However, everyone is different and some children and teens freeze and allow fear to take over. That is exactly what happened to a young 6-year-old girl when her home caught on fire. Now, it’s only natural that a child that age becomes frightened in such a situation. She saw the flames and couldn’t move. She didn’t know what to do.
