Save My Brother First

Jordan Rice has become one of the many faces of the Australia floods. This 13-year-old boy died a hero. Jordan was about to be saved when he insisted that his little brother be rescued first. His act of bravery cost him his life, but saved his brother.
"Jordan was swept off," said John Tyson, 46, Ms Rice's partner of 30 years and Jordan's father. "As soon as he went, Donna just let go, you know, trying to clutch at Jordan. The poor little boy, they just both drowned.''
He added: "He [the rescue worker] went to grab Jordan first, who said, 'Save my brother'. I can only imagine the fear coursing through his body.
"He won't go down with any fanfare or anything like that – I don't think anyone will even wear a black armband for him – but he's just the champion of all champions, a family hero."
