A teenager is being called a hero after he jumped in front of a bus to save his niece and nephew.

Ethan Tait of Newcastle, England, saw a bus coming towards him just as his sister’s twins walked onto the road.

The quick thinking 17-year-old boy ran onto the road and pushed the kids out of the way. Unfortunately, he was hit by the bus.

Tait, who loves his three-year-old niece Ruby and nephew Lennon, was willing to give his life for theirs. Luckily, he survived and was taken to a hospital to treat his injuries.

Tait’s sister Latalia and her husband Anthony, are extremely grateful to him for saving the lives of their twins.

Little Lennon was also hurt. He was left with head injuries, which needed nine stitches, and a broken leg. He was kept in the hospital for two days for observation.

However, things could have been much worse if it hadn't been for the heroic actions of his teenage uncle.

Latalia, 22, said that she closed her eyes and screamed as the scene unfolded. “I thought I had lost my brother and my babies. I’ve done nothing but cry,” Latalia said.

Day said that her mother had been ill and in a coma for the last 2 years.
