A 3-year-old boy is being called a hero after he saved a man who was trapped inside a hot car in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Bob King said his car has electrical issues and he wasn't able to unlock his doors in the parking lot of his church. He called for help when 3-year-old Keith Williams walked by, and the little boy knew exactly what to do.

“He was hot. He was locked in the car,” Keith said.

Keith went to his pastor to get help and led him outside to King.

“I'm very thankful. I don't know how long it had been. I'd say it probably be another 20 minutes sitting in there if he hadn't notified somebody,” King said.

The pastor was able to open the door from the outside and let King out of the car. Keith's mom said she's proud her little boy knew exactly what to do.
