An 8-year-old Ottawa boy may have helped save a man's life.

Ottawa paramedics say Clayton spotted a man who had fallen in deep snow near his house early on Monday, January 17, 2022. 

The man was almost completely covered in snow due to how fast snow was accumulating when Clayton spotted him.

The boy notified his parents who called 911.
