#OurNews California teen sacrificed his life to save girlfriend

On March 21, 2014 16-year-old Mateus Moore and girlfriend Mickayla Friend were on their way to a school dance when they were struck by a train. In a split second Mateus made the decision to push his girlfriend off the tracks and sacrifice his life. Mickayla is currently in critical condition in Marysville, California. Moore’s father says “Mateus was a wonderful young man and if presented with the opportunity he’d do it again.” What a tragic story. It saddens me that there wasn’t more coverage about this heroic act. Rest in peace Mateus. You truly are a hero.
