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."
