When Miesha Tate saw a mother struggling to carry her injured child, she offered to help.
In her Twitter bio, Miesha Tate calls herself a “professional face puncher,” but don’t be fooled—she’s still perfectly nice.
Tate spent her Labor Day hiking up Charleston Peak outside Las Vegas and spotted an injured 6-year-old near the top. The girl had a broken arm and her mom was struggling to carry her down the mountain, so Tate offered to carry her.
The girl, Kai, also recorded a thank you video for Tate.

Tear jerker! Meet Kai the sweet little girl that kept me company down the mountain side, very upbeat despite her broken arm. And I just have to say this was one of the most rewarding days of my athletic career. And I also want to make a point that I have been told many times that I am "too buff" or "manly" that I should stop lifting weights, that it's "gross" and not attractive for a woman. I am so happy I never listened to the limitations others wanted to put on me and I hope that our youth knows that don't have to conform. That strength and beauty come from within! #BeStrong #BeCapable #BeWhatYouWant #NoRegrets #JustLove #PayItForward #GiveBack #Inspire
“[T]here's no way I would have been able to [carry her] myself,” Kai’s mom wrote on Instagram. “Miesha, you are a true life saver and I can't thank you enough for helping us out today!”
