Real-Life Hero Rescues Child From a Burning Building

When a heroic passerby in New York City’s Bronx neighborhood heard screams coming from a burning building, he rushed to the aid of a little boy trapped inside. It isn’t everyday that someone gets a chance to be a real-life hero, and it’s even rarer to catch such a daring rescue on video!

The man responsible for saving his life used his body to shield the poor unconscious kid from the blazing inferno and carried him down a fire escape to safety. Both the young boy and the good Samaritan were treated at a nearby hospital for smoke inhalation, and luckily neither suffered any life-threatening injuries.

This video was first posted back in 2009, but it isn’t any less incredible today.
