Two 11-year-old boys were swept away by floodwaters in a river in New South Wales, Australia. Witnesses were quick to notice their distress and even quicker to call emergency services. Sergeant Joel Hunter didn't hesitate to jump in the water and go after the boys. Now he's being celebrated as a local hero!
It was the quick action of firefighters in Ukraine that saved this next child.
