    John Shear - A hero for all time (90-yr-old man saves 6-yr-old girl)

    Truly a great story... This man threw himself in front of a horse to save a little girl - a little girl he didn't even know.

    March 'heroism' fades, but John Shear is a hero for all time

    Shear is the 90-year-old Santa Anita worker who earlier this month stepped in front of a runaway horse to save a 6-year-old girl's life and could remain hospitalized for months. If we can tear ourselves away from the NCAA tournament on TV, let's salute him.


    ...he is lying today in a hospital with a multiple pelvic fractures, a fractured cheekbone, and gashes above his left eye and down his left arm.
