ROCHESTER, N.Y.(WHEC)— News10NBC is celebrating another winner of the “Do the Right Thing” award. Meet Jason Maio, from the Wilson Foundation Academy.

Jason does a lot at the Arnett branch of the city of Rochester's library system as he helps teens with homework and computer gaming issues. But, last March, he also helped save a child!

Jason saw a kid still in diapers walking down the road before going into the library, and he immediately got staff and police to help. His remarkable actions helped get the missing child back home safe.

The Do the Right Thing Awards program has been part of the Rochester Police Department since 1995 and News10NBC is a proud sponsor of the program.
