    USC cornerback Josh Shaw will be sidelined indefinitely after a heroic act left the fifth-year senior with a pair of high ankle sprains.

    Just hours after being voted a team captain on Saturday, Shaw was attending a family function when he saw his 7-year-old nephew, who does not know how to swim, struggling in a nearby pool. Instinctively, Shaw jumped from a second-floor balcony onto concrete below and crawled into the pool where he was able to help his nephew to safety, according to a release from the school.

    After getting his nephew to safety, Shaw made his way to a ladder and pulled himself from the water.

    True hero.

    If this is dumb I hope that I live in a neighborhood full of dumb people.

    His parents have a lot to be proud of, almost enough to make me pull for a Trojan.

    His mom let him up on the roof? I bet his dad is screaming up a storm on a message board somewhere about how he should get full custody. He's probably randomly talking about threesomes and politics, too.

    Don't neg rep me here, because he did a great thing. I have one question though. Is there anyone here that WOULD'NT have saved any kid, much less a nephew? Just good he was there and too bad he was injured.

    Definitely. You only know if you are put in the situation but it takes courage and decisiveness.

    Who was the, I think, NFL player who went into a lake to save two kids and died? He couldn't swim. Now how's that for bravery?

    Thank's google: Joe Delaney.

    YES! I felt so dirty rooting for a USC dude (any USC dude, football, student or graduate).

    Was the nephew imaginary?

    That would be a shame and I hope he did not fabricate it.

    Is nothing sacred any more?

    Serves me right. I should know better than to feel touched by any story these days.

    Twitterverse now saying he was involved in a domestic dispute and was running from the cops when he jumped out a THIRD story window.
