5-year-old saves toddler brother from fatal semi truck accident

HOUSTON, TX (WHDH) — A five-year-old comes to his younger brothers rescue after a fatal semi truck accident Thursday night.

Authorities say a semi hit a guard rail and the driver lost control.

The 18-wheeler, carrying a family of three, a father and two young boys, slammed into a concrete pillar and burst into flames.

The father died in the fire while the five-year-old pulled his younger brother, who is just a toddler, out of the vehicle to safety.
