Since the accident, Alissa Jenkins, mum of the two rescued girls, has referred to Kiera as their “big sister”.
She said: “She saved both my daughters’ lives. She is truly a hero. She will forever be my kids’ guardian angel.
‘These are my two kids that I have and both of them could’ve been gone in an instant and she stepped in and took over and did what she knows best to do – and that’s to protect those around her.”
