An elderly man is being hailed as a hero after he saved two children from drowning off the coast of Atlantic City.

Lou Rosso, 70, jumped into the surf to rescue a 10-year-old girl and a 12-year-old boy who were struggling in the water on Monday.

It happened as people were gathering for a Fourth of July fireworks show.

Rescuers eventually used floats and a jet ski to help the three back to shore.
