UFC fighter Miesha Tate carried an injured girl down a mountain after a hiking accident



UFC fighter Miesha Tate carried an injured 6-year-old down a mountain in Mt. Charleston, Nevada, over the weekend, according to Entertainment Tonight. 

The former bantamweight champ was hiking on the Mary Jane Falls trail, which is about 40 miles outside of Las Vegas, when she met a family whose 6-year-old daughter, Kai, had fallen and broken her arm. 

Tate "saved us easily hours of hiking and helped us get her to the hospital sooner," Kia's family wrote on Instagram. 

"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 can't 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," the post continued. 

On Facebook, the UFC fighter explained that Kai asked for Tate to carry her down the mountain.

According to the post, Kai's mother asked her, "Would you rather have me or her carry you down?"

Tate said, to her surprise, the 6-year-old quickly replied, "I want HER to carry me." 

Since her fall, Kai sent Tate a thank you video for helping her.
