NORTH PORT, FL - Two boys are being praised for doing the right thing when they came across a loaded assault rifle in the woods.
The 9, and 7 year olds immediately went and alerted one of their parents, who called police.
Along with the AR-15 rifle, police say the boys also found a laptop computer in a wooded area along Jinright Rd.
A situation that may have ended in tragedy, instead has a happy ending thanks to the good thinking of the two boys.
ABC 7 Reporter Josh Taylor is on the story.
