With so much Doom and Gloom in this world today, it's nice to know that there is still some Good and Decent people out there. Both are true Heroes and deserve to be honored.

Thank God the little boy noticed the situation and alerted his grandmother. Also, thank God, that she had the determination to think fast and help save this man.
What a great story!

A reminder to all that ordinary people can be heroes to those in need. Everyday, there are situations that arise where we have the opportunity to offer help - as small as holding a door for someone with their arms full, to saving someone's life.
Kudos to Ms. VanZee and her grandson for their awareness of their surroundings and quick actions!
