O'FALLON, Mo. (KSDK) - A girl in St. Charles County is calling her older brother a hero.

Twelve-year-old Michelle Kinnaird and her 17-year-old brother were walking home from the Dairy Queen on Main Street in O'Fallon when an SUV pulled out of a nearby parking lot.

Kinnaird says her brother pushed her out of the way so the SUV would hit him. She can't thank her brother enough for his good deed.

The family says the 17-year-old should be OK. He sustained a sprained leg and ankle and was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
