A nine-year-old boy in Northport, Alabama is being hailed a hero, credited with saving his father's life.
Connor Renfroe was home alone with his father, Bo on January 30 when his dad fell and started shaking. Conner says he was scared at first, but then calmed down. He ran next door to his cousin's house where they called 911.
Connor's dad doesn't remember anything up until the point he was inside the ambulance.
"I don't really get how it saved his life," Connor said. "But my mom told me that if I just stood there and left him shaking, he would have died."
Connor was honored at a city council meeting, where the town's mayor declared February 17 to be Connor Renfroe day in the city of Northport.
"It's hard to grasp it, but, just how proud I am," Connor's dad Bo said. "He's told me before that I was his hero...but now, it's gotten turned around."
Connor was also given an accommodation award from the Northport Fire Department.
