Twitter J.J. Watt At Hospital With Young Fan

An 8-year-old Texas boy who helped save his younger siblings in a car accident got a special visit in the hospital from Houston Texans star J.J. Watt.

Noah Fulmer was wearing his No. 99 Watt jersey while celebrating New Year's Eve with his family when a pickup truck plowed through a parking lot at Matagorda Beach. The truck hit four members of the family, including Fulmer's stepfather, but it could have been worse.

"Luckily, Noah ended up saving his little brother and sister -- he ended up some way pushing them out of the way so they wouldn't get hurt that bad," Fulmer's mother, Maria Garza, told ABC 13.

To treat Noah, the paramedics had to cut through his jersey. But now he has a new one -- courtesy of Watt.
