This young Mississippi kid is a hero in every sense of the word.
A 16-year-old, selfless, hero, who put his own life on the line to save 4 drowning people from a river, including a police officer.
His name is Corion Evans, and when he saw the car sinking, and the people struggling, he knew he would NOT let them die.
And that sweet young boy kept his word…
Western Journal reported that a Mississippi teenager became a life-saver Sunday as he helped four people to safety from the Pascagoula River.
It was 2:30 a.m. when Corion Evans, 16, saw a car with three people inside it drive into the river.
According to People, the Moss Point Police Department said the car’s driver said she was led astray by GPS directions she was following.
Whatever the reason, the car went out 20 feet from shore and started to sink into the river, according to WLOX-TV.
“They drove straight under the water. Like, only a little bit of the car was still above the water,” Evans said.
The Pascagoula High School student, who has been swimming since he was 3 years old, did not hesitate. Off came the shirt and shoes. The phone was tossed aside, and into the water he went.
“I was just like, ‘I can’t let none of these folks die. They need to get out the water’. So, I just started getting them,” he said. “I wasn’t even thinking about nothing else.”

The piece goes on to say that a Moss Point Police Officer by the name of Gary Mercer was the cop who responded to the call, but he was having a hard time staying afloat.
“I turned around. I see the police officer,” Evans said. “He’s drowning. He’s going underwater, drowning, saying, ‘Help!’” Evans recalled.
Dear God…so scary. This kid is cool under pressure.
“So, I went over there. I went and I grabbed the police officer and I’m like swimming him back until I feel myself I can walk.”
“They was out there throwing up because a lot of water had got inside all of them,” Evans said. “Twenty-five yards out, so it was a lot of swimming. My legs were so tired after.”
One of the girls who was rescued said Evans saved her just before she took her last breath.
Can you imagine how proud this young man’s parents are?
This kid will be blessed beyond belief… and he is destined for even more greatness.
