We look to it every time we say the Pledge of Allegiance or walk into any state, federal or local building. The American flag stands tall, shining red, white and blue, but what happens when it nearly touches the ground?
If you are 18-year-old Cole Dotson, a senior and the class president at Continental High School in Continental, Ohio, you hold on to it and wait for help.
Dotson was driving past his high school on Sunday when he noticed the American flag hovering dangerously close to the ground, so he stopped his car and held the flag, while calling his grandmother for assistance.
