Mintz made the daring move on the sixth birthday of his son, Tyrik. “It’s my son’s birthday, it’s my son’s birthday,” he was heard to say as he lay wounded. When word of Mintz’s heroism reached his kin in his native North Carolina, his cousin Derek Bourgeois was hardly surprised. “It sounds like something he would do,” Bourgeois said. h/t dailybeast
