Three Marshalltown children — ages 9, 11 and 13 — rescued their dad after a shed collapsed on top of him Tuesday.

Authorities say Matt Gannaway was struck by a shed as his children were helping out. He was knocked out as a result. The children helped call 911 and also lifted the shed and dragged him to safety.

Gannaway suffered injuries as a result including a broken shoulder blade and he’s recovering. He says he’s a proud papa after the actions of his kids.
