Boy credits ‘Grand Theft Auto’ for car crash heroics

An 11-year-old boy is crediting what he learned from playing the game Grand Theft Auto for helping him save his grandfather’s life.

According to the Daily Mirror, Charley Cullen was driving with his 79-year-old grandfather on a highway in Co Meath, Ireland, when his grandfather blacked out behind the wheel going 73 mph.

Cullen grabbed the wheel and steered them away from other cars while he tried to wake up his grandfather. The boy was able to stop the car by crashing it sideways along a wall.
