When a dog was hit by a car in Brazil and left helpless in the middle of the road a young boy came to his rescue. 11-year-old Jean Fernandes risked his life to bring the dog to safety.

A dog named Honey was hit by a car in Itajaí, Brazil. The driver didn’t stop and Honey was left in the road as cars continued to drive by. Jean Fernandes couldn’t sit and watch as Honey was left helpless in the street. He ran into traffic to reach the dog and bring her to safety.

Photographer Rafaela Martins was on the scene and captured Jean Fernades’ heroics.

Honey is now in the care of veterinarians at a local animal shelter and is reported to be doing well.
