Showing Initiative

Nine year old, James P. Stevens, saved the lives of his mother and two siblings by taking control when his mother passed out at the wheel of the family vehicle. He jumped on his mother's lap, pulled the car safely off the road, put the car in park and called 911. He calmly guided rescuers to the scene while comforting his frightened siblings until help arrived. Wow. What a kid!
