A hero no matter what he was wearing

HAMBURG TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - August 21, 2012

Ten-year-old A.J. Hieber rode off to get help for his dad, who is allergic to bee-stings.

His father Adam was stung twice while mowing their lawn in Hamburg Township, Michigan. A.J. hopped on his bike to get his mother.

She was at a nearby beach, with A.J.'s little sister.

A local paper reports the quick thinking kid likely saved his dad's life.
