Michael Martinez was born with cerebral palsy, leaving him unable to walk and requiring a wheelchair to move around. He also has limited motor skills in this right arm, his mom, Angie Martinez, told Fox News.Nevertheless, it didn't stop him from crawling to his parent's bedroom Thursday night -- well after they had already fallen asleep --  to alert them of the sound of an alarm coming from downstairs."Many people look at people with disabilities like they are not able to do much, but Michael showed everyone just how untrue that is,".
