The ambulance arrived in time thanks to Will's quick-thinking actions.

His mother said: "He's pretty young, he's only in the sixth grade, and he's only been on the bus for three weeks now. He knew what needed to be done and he did it." 

She continued: "The principal actually called him a hero. He really is - he helped save his driver."

Another young hero is found in 6-year-old Roman McConn. He shows his bravery regularly by saving thousands of dogs daily.

The little boy works with mother Jennifer in Texas. After the rescue of their first family dog, they recognized the need to save other dogs from similar circumstances. 

Roman is a crucial part of the team as he shares inspiring informational videos online featuring the dogs. They get the animals to new families they term "forever homes."

Through Project Freedom Ride, they have raised cash for care of the dogs and to assist local shelters in relocating dogs residing from Texas to Washington.
