Video Of Schoolboy, 11, is dubbed a ‘hero’ after jumping behind the wheel of his sick grandmother’s Mercedes-Benz to drive her to get medical help.
A schoolboy who drove his grandmother for medical help after she began feeling shaky while they were out walking has been praised for his heroism.
PJ Brewer-Laye, 12, who lives in Indianapolis, was out walking with his grandmother Angela Brewer-Laye, about a mile and a half from their house when she suffered a medical emergency.
Angela began to experience the symptoms of low blood pressure including feeling shaky and seeing spots in her vision, while PJ was tearing up and down the same road on his go kart.
‘I was leaning against a stop sign then all of a sudden I looked to my right and I saw my car, my Mercedes Benz coming towards me. Wait a minute.
‘Looked in the car. It was him, it was PJ,’ she told 11Alive.
Angela explained that PJ noticed the change in her behaviour and quickly sprang into action to help before she had time to think.
She praised the her grandson, who turned 12 this week, who doesn’t have a driving license and isn’t yet at the legal driving age for handling her car like a ‘pro’.
Revealing they often spend time together outside, Angela said: ‘He always rides either his four-wheeler, go-kart or his dirt bike while I’m trying to get a little exercise in.’
The grandmother was appreciative of PJ’s ability to stay ‘calm and collected’ behind the wheel during her medical emergency.
