Teen riding his motorcycle into store to save lives
A teenage boy riding his bike into a Wal-Mart store to rescue a child who had fallen into a pool of water had his motorcycle taken away by police.
The 17-year-old was riding his father’s motorcycle, which is legally owned by his father, on Sunday, the Daytona Beach Police Department said.
The teen’s father had a citation for driving with a suspended license for the incident and the teen, who had just gotten his driver’s license, told police the incident was not his fault.
The boy’s father told police he was going to the store to pick up his son and the car got stuck in the water and the boy was pulled into the pool of the store by the mother, who was also riding the motorcycle, police said.
After the boy had gotten into the car, the father got out and the mother got into the driver’s seat of the car to get the boy out.
He then pulled the boy into the back seat of his car.
The police said the boy and the father had been arguing, the teen told police.
When the boy tried to get back into the vehicle, the boy’s brother got into a physical fight with the father, who then ran the teen over, police reported.
The teenage boy was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries, police and the police department said.
He was not arrested or charged.
