A story that could have ended in tragedy instead had a very happy ending, in part due to Julianna Brooks' resourcefulness.

When Sheriff Mark Garber's daughter and babysitter went missing last week, everyone in Acadiana held their breaths in hope that they would be found safe and sound. Julianna Brooks was the perfect babysitter for the situation because of her experience with canoeing and the outdoors. Brooks spoke with KATC about the experience of getting lost, working to keep Garber's daughter Cece calm. It's a safe bet Brooks will be getting more babysitting jobs in the future thanks to her heroics in this situation.
