A teen boy is being hailed a hero after he saved his former teacher who was trapped underneath a car.

It happened February 26 around 6 p.m. in Pleasantville, New Jersey. Carlos Molina, 14, was walking home from a nearby store when he suddenly heard someone crying for help. Molina ran towards North Main Street Elementary School where he found his former music teacher, Betty O’Shea, pinned underneath her car. With no hesitation, Molina sprang into action.

“I felt like I had to help her because she was one of my former teachers,” said Molina. “She was asking for help. So I just lifted it up and just pushed it away.”

O’Shea says she was looking for her cell phone when the car rolled over her leg. She is expected to be okay. On Wednesday Molina received a certificate of appreciation and a gift card.
