Nine-year-old Andrew Gordon has been called many things -- like a good student and a good basketball player. Now, his hometown fire department is adding "hero" to that list.
The Louisiana boy used CPR to help save his mom's life after she collapsed in their home.
When Andrew found his mom, he quickly called 9-1-1. The operator told the boy to try and start CPR. Andrew knew what to do because of his school gym class.
"I was scared. I called, then she said 'What's your emergency?' And she said 'Hello,' and I said 'My mom has fell and she won't wake up,'" Andrew recalled.
"We were just impressed by his knowledge of what to do," said local firefighter Luke Ohlinger. "Just the calmness that he had."
Andrew said he wants kids to pay attention in physical education like he did.
"Hopefully, that problem won't happen to you. But if it does, hopefully you'll know what to do," he said.
The fire department is honoring the boy for paying attention in class. His mom says that he's her guardian angel.
