A 9-year-old autistic boy from the U.K. is being hailed a hero after he grabbed the steering wheel of his mother's car when she blacked while driving 70 mph, it is reported.

According to The Daily Mail, Jonathan Anderson took over the controls of the car in rush-hour traffic, saving them both from a potentially deadly situation.

Anderson, who suffers from Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism, struggled to get the car under control and twice weaved across lanes of traffic, it was reported.
