Beaming in on the wires from North Ridgeville is the story of a 3-year-old rugrat who saved his pops after the old man passed out and tumbled down the stairs. According to the AP, when an injured Vince Lamitie regained consciousness, his son Vincent was at his side talking with 911 operators.

How did little Vincent know to call 911? He saw it on SpongeBob SquarePants.
