Jack Foster, 2009
Sometimes for a kid to save a life they need to use whatever weapon is at hand, even if it’s a toy. When 7-year-old Jack Foster of Ararat, Australia woke up to bizarre noises in his home, he certainly didn’t expect to see a man attacking his father with a crowbar in their TV room. The burglar had broken in to steal Oxycontin that Foster’s father Christopher used for pain relief in his back. Jack tried to grab the phone to call police but the crazed drug addict knocked it out of his hand. Smartly, young Jack ran to get his dad’s cell phone, called the cops, and then re-entered the fray wielding a toy plastic sword, which he used to smack the scumbag around while yelling the police were on their way. The crook was soon arrested, but Jack’s father received 52 stitches and a day in the ICU.
