Amazing boy with Asperger Syndrome gives the Definition of Hero

A 9-year-old autistic boy from the U.K. is being hailed a hero after he grabbed the steering wheel of his mother's car when she blacked while driving 70 mph, it is reported.
According to The Daily Mail, Jonathan Anderson took over the controls of the car in rush-hour traffic, saving them both from a potentially deadly situation.
Anderson, who suffers from Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism, struggled to get the car under control and twice weaved across lanes of traffic, it was reported.
But fortunately, he stayed calm and eventually brought the car to a stop using the emergency brake, The Mail reported.
"I must have passed out, because the next thing I saw was a paramedic fitting a brace around my neck," said the boy's mother Marion Anderson.
"I just couldn't believe it when I was told what had happened and what Jonathan had done."
The schoolboy is to be presented with a bravery certificate, according to the report.
"He's my little superhero," said Anderson.
