Jackson Payne is only 9, but he’s SUPERMAN!
The Free Lance-Star reports that the Fredericksburg native, is being hailed as hero for saving his mother and brother in two separate incidents. Jackson first sprung into action after his mom collapsed from chest pain. He immediately called 911 and ran to a neighbor’s home for help. Jackson’s swift actions saved his mother’s life. His brother then suffered an allergic reaction after ingesting nuts less than two weeks later. Jackson raced to retrieve an EpiPen to save his brother’s life.
He says; “I’m pretty low key helping people every day, but that was pretty high key. I’ve not saved a life many times, so my mom was a first and I did it for my brother for a second time.” Jackson’s heroic actions were recognized by his local sheriff’s department during a special ceremony this week.
