Jean Fernandes, 11, Stops Traffic to Save Injured Dog

by at . Comments

In case you needed proof that kids are heroes, look no further than 11 year old Jean Fernandes, who loves animals so much he stopped oncoming traffic to save an injured dog.

The dog was hit by a car and the driver of that car just kept driving. Jean Fernandes couldn't leave the dog in the middle of the road and risk it getting hit again, so he risked his own life instead.

Rubia Lilliana Rose, Jean's mother, told BioBioChile that her son loves animals and rescues those which he finds abandoned or abused.

When he saw the injured dog, he wove himself between oncoming cars in order to reach the animal. 

Mel, the dog Jean saved, is one lucky pup. He is in the care of veterinarians but is doing well.

I hope this goes viral. This caring soul is my hero. He values life that no one else does. Jean does what his heart tells him to do and gives of himself to preserve a little life who can't help himself. Bravo, Jean. I would love to know you.

What a hero! Good job on helping the doggy in his time of need. Don't ever falter on generosity and your blessings won't either.
