10-Year “Old” Unsung Hero


On February 22, 2016, 10-year old Keyra Larsen gave up her life to save two younger children from the neighborhood. According to police records, Keyra and a 1- and 2-year old children were playing when a parked SUV began rolling backwards. Keyra pushed the two toddlers out of the way, was struck by the SUV and pushed against a fence. She was taken to a local hospital where she died from her injuries.

Keyra did not make millions scoring a touchdown nor putting a basketball through a hoop or a puck in a net. Her name won’t be in any record books. She didn’t make millions showing off her private life a la Kardashian or Paris Hilton. No glamorous cosmetic products will be named after her. She didn’t even get much of a chance to enjoy a life. However, she is an everyday unsung hero.

A fund has been set up to help Keyra’s family.
