Son, 9, saves dad in runaway truck, wants a PS3

9-year-old Matty Lovo saved his father, Matt Lovo, who passed out behind the wheel of his tractor-trailer. Carrying more than 100,000 pounds of weight behind him, young Matty took control of the big rig and called for help via C.B. radio despite never having been behind the wheel of a car.

"Without Matty's quick effort, he, his father and others could've been seriously injured. CNN's Kyra Phillips asked him if he thought he was a hero and he unabashedly answered "Yeah." So, what is the young, self-described hero of nine going to do now? "He keeps telling me he thinks he needs his PlayStation 3 now for a reward," his father answered for him."

Hehe, nice story. Warms my heart to see good kids only wanting the best :)

DarthBillBoy, lol, yeah, you're prob right.

ShiftyLookingCow3994d ago

nah the kid is a kid and he wants the most expensive toy

jromao3994d ago (Edited 3994d ago )

Dealing with that truck only shows the kid is very smart, of course that means he knows what's good and PS3 is only option. If he crashed the truck then x360 would probably be his choice.

Fortunately kids are getting smarter everyday :)

Incredible how this story was responded to and or even posted. Just shows how fanboyism has no boundaries. Here is tommorrow's headline for another mal-posted news story. "Typical oxygen breathing human, wants a PS3."

I don't agree with what you all call flaming. I bought a 60gb PS3 last 11/17/06 & I actually enjoy it. I had bought a 360 on 11/22/05, but the (then) lack of a LCD TV, the 360 was sold later the same day. Not to mention it froze on me several times & I foresaw all kinds of trouble down the line. Basically, I want all consoles to strive & do well. I do plan on buying another 360 eventually. But damn Son, stop trying to brainwash everybody into your way of thinking. You have a 360 & you're happy with it. Stop trying to be the N4G, console dictator/totalitarian. I've been reading alot of your posts. Son, you're a real clown.

But, you should have addressed that message to damn there this entire site. Because almost everyone on here does it from time to time; including yourself.

But, good point though

Why so full of hate my friend?

Vavoom3992d ago (Edited 3992d ago )

Why do you see eLines as full of hate, he is doing nothing different than the pro-ps3 people in this thread, yet you say nothing to them. Kinda hypocritical. IMO

“He keeps telling me he thinks he needs his PlayStation 3 now for a reward,” his father answered for him.

Ludwig3994d ago

Uh, if every kid that asks for a PS3 get into "news" in this website.... we better call it "N4S" ..
