16-year-old Javier Solis is being hailed as a hero after he saved his three young relatives from being hit by a car.
It was New Year's Day and Javier and his three nieces had just gotten snacks from Circle K when they started crossing a street to go back home. They were about to be hit by a car when Solis pushed his 11-year-old, 4-year-old, and 12-year-old relatives out of the way.
Solis was hit by the car and now has three fractures in his skull, and some broken limbs. He had surgery and doctors are planing to wake him up this weekend. One of the girls that Solis saved shared with WWLP local TV station, "I want him to know that we love him and to feel better."
