Losing a mother at any age can be extremely upsetting but for a 4-year old boy to have spent 2 days at home with his mother who died of natural causes can be traumatizing. Had it not been for the diligence of Rent-A-Center employee Taijuan Littleton who knows how long it would have been before someone had made the terrible discovery. Littleton who is dubbed a hero doesn’t think so, he feels like he was just doing what he was led to do. EarHustle411 give KUDOS to Taijuan Littleton for following his first mind and ultimately saving the life of Bryan Allen, Jr and to the police department for working hard to give 4-year old Bryan a great Christmas amid a tragic situation. We send our condolences and prayers to the family and friends of Shaleena Hamilton.

A rental store employee is being credited with rescuing a 4-year-old boy who spent two days alone with his mother’s body after she died suddenly in their Buffalo apartment.
Rent-A-Center worker Taijuan Littleton says he had a Dec. 4 appointment with customer Shaleena Hamilton, but she didn’t answer the door when he arrived. Her son Bryan Allen eventually opened the door after telling Littleton he couldn’t wake up his mother.
Littleton called 911 and took Bryan to his work truck, where he wrapped the boy in a blanket.
Police say the boy survived on milk and maple syrup for two days. An autopsy determined his mother died of natural causes.
Bryan is in the care of relatives.
Police will present him with a new bicycle and other gifts on Monday.
