Little Xander from Indiana became a hero at the age of 5. He did not panic when his father got into trouble. This saved the man’s life.
The day started off like any other day: the father was doing some chores in the yard while the little boy played nearby. At some point, the boy got cold and ran into the house to get his jacket. When he returned, he saw the tractor was running and his father was in the cab. His father was unconscious, and his face was covered in blood.
“I realized that a tree branch fell on my dad, and I turned off the tractor engine,” the child recalls.
From childhood, the little boy grew up next to his father’s workshop and cars, so he knew how to turn off the engine. Without wasting any time, Xander ran to his neighbor, who called the emergency service number 911. Soon a helicopter arrived, and the man was taken to the hospital. He suffered serious injuries, including a concussion, numerous bone fractures, and a spinal fracture.
Thanks to the timely help, his father was able to fully recover. The little boy was awarded a medal for bravery. During the award ceremony, Xander burst into tears and said, “I love you, Daddy!”
