Douglasville hero teen and mom to appear on radio show

Posted: Updated:

A nationally syndicated radio show host is reaching out to a young hero whose family recently lost their home.

Carson Taylor, 15, was hailed a hero in March after saving a neighbor’s life.

Carson was recognized by the media and Douglas County school district for convincing a school bus driver to turn around, so he could render aid to Jennifer Tincher when he saw her collapsed at her home in March.

“I’m very very grateful I owe that young man my life,” said Tincher.

Taylor and his mother, Arnetta Taylor, will appear on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show Tuesday.

Taylor’s family lost their home in June, but thanks to the generosity of the FOX 5 viewers and others they are making it one day at a time.

“It's been hard but we are blessed because we could have been homeless and thanks to the generosity of the community we are not,” said Arnetta Taylor.

Arnetta Taylor was thrilled to learn Monday that Rickey Smiley wants to feature her family on his morning show.

The family’s church is putting them up at an extended stay motel, as a temporary home while Carson and Arnetta get back on their feet, in addition to contributions from FOX 5 viewers.

Arnetta Taylor tells FOX 5 she is up for a job and has a second interview lined up this week.

The family has no car and there is no public transportation in Douglas County.
