WESTLAKE, Ohio -- Would a marching band be enough to get you out of bed?

It almost wasn't for little 8-year-old Alex Krouse, who lives in Westlake. His mother, Ginny, said she literally has to drag him out of bed because he will not wake up in the morning.

She says he barely makes it to school because he sleeps until the last minute.

Tuesday, Fox 8's Kenny Crumpton gave him a LIVE wake-up call to see if that would do the trick. He had some help from members of the Westlake band.
