A fifth-grader saved his younger sister's life by pushing her out of the way of an oncoming car before being struck and killed. 

Chester, South Carolina, fifth-grader La'Darious Wylie was struck and killed by a car last Tuesday morning while waiting for the school bus. 

Witnesses at the scene, though, say Wylie's last act was a heroic one far beyond his age. 

The other children waiting for the bus said that Wylie, 11, managed to push his little sister Shavonte out of the way of a car before it struck him. The driver then sped away from the scene, The Herald reports. 

"In other words, he saved his sister," his aunt, Felicia Mobley, told WBTV. "And he ended up being the one that's where he is now." 

Wylie died the following day in the hospital.
