Heroic teenager sacrifices himself to save grandfather
TEENAGER Kane Bailey is being hailed a hero after sacrificing himself to save his grandad who fell head first between a moving car and trailer at the weekend.
The 16-year-old Benowa High School student dived in to grab Robert Bailey Sr after noticing him stumbling over a kerb in the car park of the Nerang RSL and into the moving vehicle.
Witnesses said the 73-year-old Vietnam Vet "would have landed head first under the wheel of the trailer" had Kane not acted.
The trailer ran over the young sports captain's leg, breaking his tibia and fibia and fracturing his ankle.
Mr Bailey Sr, from Oxenford, suffered an injury to his finger as the trailer ran over the pair.
"I would not be here today if he didn't do what he did, he had no thought for himself or his own wellbeing," said Mr Bailey Sr.
