Heroic Boy Scout Steers Car to Safety After Father Has Seizure Behind the Wheel
13-year-old Michael Jones may not be old enough to drive, but he's old enough to be a hero.
When Jones' father had a seizure while driving, the teenager grabbed the wheel and managed to steer the car and his father to safety.
Michael's father, Daniel Domagalski, explained on "Fox and Friends Weekend" this morning that it was a normal day, and he had no way of knowing that he was about to have a seizure. It struck suddenly while he was behind the wheel.
Michael said that he saw his dad was unresponsive, panicked for a brief moment and then reached over and took control of the vehicle.
"I made sure I didn't hurt anybody," Michael explained. "We drove through an intersection and stopped two houses away from the intersection."
Domagalski said that when he was laying on a gurney and talking to a paramedic, he realized that his son had saved the day.
"I'm very proud of him. He does stuff every day that completely amazes me."
Michael received an award from his Boy Scout troop for his heroic quick thinking and composure, and he will also receive a national award of merit.
"Everybody can save somebody," the inspiring 13-year-old said.
