Boy Uses Savings to Buy Smoke Detectors

In today's edition of the " Good Stuff,"  a nine-year-old saves up for months to get a Playstation 4 but changes his priorities for the safety of his community. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Hector Montoya really wanted a Playstation 4.

After saving for months, he was well on his way to purchasing his dream toy – but then he saw a sad story on the news.

A mother and daughter in a nearby town died in a fire.  It turns out, their home didn't have a smoke detector.

"I said saving a life is more important," says Montoya.

The boy took all of his cash and bought smoke detectors, almost a hundred of them, and with the help of his local fire department, installed them for seniors and those in need.
