4-Year Old Boy Hailed A Hero After Saving Father's Life

Posted: Updated:
BEAR LAKE TOWNSHIP, MI -

A four-year old in Michigan is being hailed a hero after he saved his father's life.

Meet little Quillan Groenwald! Last week Grant Groenwald was cutting wood behind his Bear Lake home when a log hit him in the shoulder and the elbow forcing him to fall over.

Once grant was pinned under the log he turned to his son for help.

"I said Quillan, you need to help daddy, daddy's trapped. And he says, I can't daddy, I just can't, there's no way I can," Grant told WGTU.

Quillan dragged a chainsaw to his hurt father allowing mister grant to cut himself free.

When Quillan was asked what does it mean to be a superhero, he responded, "Means you got to help everyone in the whole world when they are in trouble."

Grant broke his left ankle and damaged all the soft tissue in his foot. But he was very thankful his son stepped up in such a scary situation

"It's really scary what could have been, I'm glad that it is as minor as it is now, but he's my little hero, he's my savior," said Grant.

Quillan's parents say he may not fully understand the importance of what he did now, but they say they won't ever let him forget his heroic act.
