Heroic Teen Jumps in Front of Truck to Save Friend

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a teenager jumps into action to save his friend from being hit by a truck. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Kameron Howell-Meeker, 15, was walking with his friend, Ellie Fielder, to meet some of their buddies, when the truck came out of nowhere.

Fielder described how they were walking when "he grabbed my arm and pushed me when the car was coming."

She was saved, but the truck hit Howell-Meeker dead on.

The teen is banged up but expected to be OK.

And, like so many people we tell you about who are heroes, he doesn't think he is one.

"I don't think I should be a hero, I just helped a friend in need," he said.

The driver of that truck was charged with DUI.
