“AN eight-year-old boy has been hailed a hero after he hot-wired a two-way radio to call for help as his dad lay trapped in the wreckage of a horror truck rollover.  
Michael Bowron stripped the radio wires and connected them to a spare battery he found among the wreckage.

I don’t even know how to jump start a car, so I have grudging respect and admiration for this young Macgyver wannabe. This little kid crawled out of the wreckage of his dad’s truck (no small feat), and then had the presence of mind to to hotwire a radio to call for help.
 
If I were in an accident that totaled my car, I would be crying like a school girl, and I probably wouldn’t have the presence of mind to call for help on my cell phone.
 
I hope the dad buys his son jillions of video games, he wouldn’t be alive if it weren’t for the valor and ingenuity of his son.
 
 

 

Yesterday, the Bonnie Rock youngster told The Sunday Times his fingers burned from sparks flying off the battery while he desperately called for help.”
