GILMANTON, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire teen has been credited with saving a boy more than 800 miles away, thanks to TikTok.

WMUR-TV reports that 13-year-old Caden Cotnoir was watching a TikTok livestream of 12-year-old Trent Jarrett riding a four-wheeler in West Virginia, when something went awry.

Caden said he could hear Jarrett yelling out numbers that turned out to be his gradparents’ phone number. After a virtual call for help, Trent’s parents managed to find him and lift the ATV off him.

After being trapped for about 20 minutes, he sustained minor cuts and bruises.

The boys met via Zoom on Monday.
