I hope this amazing boy recovers from his injuries and I would like to congratulate his parents on their exceptional job of raising this kid. The bravery was all Preston but the daily concern and care for his elderly neighbor is all about the compassion that he was taught by his family.

Wow! I'm in Houston and read about this. What a terrific and brave young man. With all the negative things we hear about teenagers its refreshing to hear a positive one. I would love to have this young man as my neighbor. Way to go Preston! I hope you have a speedy recovery and so sorry that your friend and neighbor did not make it--may he rest in peace.

It's amazing that a child so young put his neighbor/friend before himself. You don't see too much of that with today's youth. I am sorry for the family's loss of their friend. I commend the parents on their child-rearing. I'm sure they're proud of Preston and his act of selflessness. Thank you Preston for being a shining example of how we all should be. I hope you heal quickly in both body, mind and spirit.

Preston your a true man in my book, you did what many of us wish we were brave enough to do, often the opportunity to prove what we are made of never comes, and often it comes and goes before we are ready to respond. Your opportunity came and you were right there.
This says volumes about your character, I expect you will go far in life. Its tragic that Taylor did not survive. But what you did for him will shine forever and makes the world a better place for us all.
Thank you bro, thank you.

Sorry for the loss, but its good to see young boys growing up with the right state of mind to do what is put in front of you to help those in need. A true hero in most books, even with the tragic loss of the gentlemans life. Hes in heaven now looking down and im sure he couldnt be happier.

This young man is a true hero. It is nice to hear of a kid that actually respects life these days. Unlike all of the reports of kids going out and killing, injuring, robbing other human beings. His parents deserve a lot of credit for raising such a fine young man.

While this is true that this young man is a brave and heroic young man, I would like to respond to those who say they don't see this from today's youth. Many many more young men and women are like this young man. They volunteer, sing to the elderly, Raise money for organizations and many other good deeds. The problem is not so much with the youth of today, rather it is with the media that does not report on the "good" news. As we have learned with the wars, if it bleeds, it leads. You hear nothing of the good works being done. Rather the death and destruction. I would challenge that there are many young people out there who do good, serve their communities and respect life, you just don't hear about it.
