After his friend was hit on his bicycle by an SUV, Ruben Nuncio went into action and carried the injured boy home.
Memorial Hermann Hospital officials tell Eyewitness News that Eric Kelley is listed as stable. He and his friend were on their way home on their bicycles around 7pm Tuesday when police say an SUV ran a stop sign at Avenue E at Cesar Chavez and hit Kelley.
Police said the vehicle stopped long enough for someone to get out, remove the bike from underneath the car, and leave the scene.
In the meantime, nine-year-old Ruben Nuncio said he threw his injured friend over his shoulder and carried him home.
“His head was right here where my hood’s at. I carried him all the way to Sherman. Then when we got to the house and his mom started running out and crying. Everybody started chasing after the car,” said Nuncio.
