However, for one young man in West Virginia, scrolling through TikTok turned out to be a life-saver.
12-year-old Trent Jerrett was live streaming while riding his ATV and it suddenly rolled and he was pinned underneath.
Luckily for Trent, a follower in New Hampshire, Caden Cotnoir, happened to be watching his live stream.
“I was yelling out my grandparents’ house phone number,” Trent explained after the incident.READ MORE: Trevor Noah To Host 'The 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards' On CBS
“At that point, I knew something was wrong and I brought the phone to them,” Caden recalled after he brought his phone to the adults.
“He did what he was supposed to do and got the right people, and it worked out, it was an Easter miracle,” said Caden’s stepdad.
Caden’s stepdad happens to be a police chief and was able to get word to Trent’s family about the accident.
