JASON'S STORY - WINNER
MAN SACRIFICED LIFE TO SAVE HUNDREDS OF LIVES
An air traffic controller in Indonesia knew he needed to evacuate the tower during the recent earthquake. He was only 21 years-old and he sacrificed his life to help get a plane off the ground knowing that he could save hundreds of lives. He lost his life jumping from the 4th floor of the tower, but died a true hero. So heartbreaking.
