Houston Alexander rescues girl from child neglect

UFC light-heavyweight Houston Alexander last Wednesday rescued a child left alone inside an unlocked car in Omaha, Nebraska, according to NBC affiliate in Omaha, WOWT-TV.

Alexander, who spotted the four-year-old girl crying inside a Chevy Lumina, attended to her by leading her on a search for her guardian. The heavy puncher first took her into a dialysis center before finding the girl's mother at the next door plasma center.

The mother was reported to Child Protective Services and cited for misdemeanor child neglect.

Alexander out of Omaha, has another heroic story. The father of six carries a scar on his stomach from donating his kidney to his daughter nine years ago.

Alexander recently withdrew from his UFC 98 fight on May 23 against Andre Gusmao due to a broken hand.
