Toddler saves elderly man trapped in hot car

TENNESSEE (WFLX) - An elderly Tennessee man has a 3-year-old boy to thank for being alive Wednesday morning. The little hero saved him from a hot car over the weekend.

The man got locked in his car Saturday in his church's parking lot. As the temperature soared into the 90s, the man couldn't get himself out.

That's when he spotted the boy nearby and hollered at him to get his attention. The 3-year-old then ran for help.

The man says his car had electrical issues.
