(KCEN)  An 8-year-old Navasota, Texas boy is being called a hero after saving his sister from a possible kidnapper.

Donavon Mitchell and his 4-year-old sister Makayla were playing in their yard Sunday when something happened that the family never thought they'd have to worry about.

Donavon says the woman drove up to his house, offered he and his sister money and said she'd take them anywhere they wanted.

That's when Donavon remembered a very important rule he learned in school.

"To stay away from strangers because you might never know what they can do to you," Donavon said.
