INDEPENDENCE, KY (FOX19) -

A six-year-old boy's quick thinking has hailed him a hero.

Jalen Plair sprung into action when he noticed that his diabetic grandmother wasn't feeling well and was unresponsive. He quickly retrieved a sugary soda for his grandmother and called his great-grandmother for additional help.

Jalen, who wants to be a police officer when he grows up, downplayed his actions saying, "That's what cops do."

Jalen was honored at his school, Beechgrove Elementary, on Thursday with the Hero Award.
