Photo: 7 year old hero
A 7-year-old Florida boy proved that you’re never too young to be a hero when he protected his 4-year-old younger brother and his friend from a dog attack.
Police said the dog found its way into the backyard where the children were playing.
“A 7-year-old grabbed his 4-year-old little brother and another 4-year-old friend and basically threw them underneath a car, protecting them. The child threw himself on the 4-year-old, basically shielding them from the dog. The dog began to maul the 7-year-old,” Fernando Morales with the Homestead police said.
That’s when the 7-year-old’s father grabbed a shovel from his work truck and hit the dog, making it run away.
