A Rent-A-Center employee who saved a 4-year-old boy will be honored by the Erie County Legislature on Thursday.

Taijuan Littleton found little Bryan Allen Jr. alone with his dead mother at a Delavan Avenue apartment. Littleton saw the mother collapsed on the floor, and convinced the boy to open the door.

He then wrapped Bryan in a blanket and took him outside. Police thanked Littleton for his actions, and the county legislature will do the same on Thursday.

Allen's mother, Shaleena Hamilton, died of natural causes.
