Pakistani teenager Aitzaz Hasan, 15, is being hailed a hero after he was killed Monday when he tackled a suicide bomber who was targeting his school.

Aitzaz Hasan spotted a suspicious man outside of his school. Instead of cowering in fear as most people would have done, Aitzaz approached the man despite pleas from fellow students to stop. After confronting the bomber, the bomb was detonated, killing the bomber and Aitzaz.
