Bryant Collins became an instant hero last week after he rescued a lost 15-month-old girl who was about to wander into traffic.  He likely saved the girl's life, but he never would have been able to if he hadn't saved his own.

Collins is an ex-con who spent 10 years in a federal prison for drugs.  While behind bars, he made a commitment to turn his life around.  This situation looks like proof that he has kept the promise. 

Bryant was driving along Highway 72 in Georgia when he saw the little girl just feet from the road.  He pulled over to grab her, calmed her down with some gospel music on his phone and spent two hours with her while the police tried to figure out where she came from.
