The parents of Xander Vento, a little boy who was forced under the water while saving another child at a neighborhood pool in Fort Worth, Texas, earlier this week, says they are taking their son off of life support.

I just don't have the words... My heart is breaking for this family; such a heroic sacrafice from such a young child.
