Young Boys Miraculously Save Two Babies From House Fire

Two kids in Florida are heroes for coming to the aid of two young children caught in a blaze.

Isiah Francis, 10, and Jeremiah Grimes, 11, went into a neighboring home that caught fire on Tuesday, in Oakland, Fla., to save two other kids — a 1-year-old and an 8-month-old. Firefighters also pulled out a 2-year-old and a 5-year-old who are in currently in critical condition.

Jeremiah displayed a calmness beyond his years while explaining what happened:

Just stay calm, keep your mind straight. Stay focused on what you’re doing.”

The duo called 911 before they decided to run into the house, which Jeremiah said “felt like it was 150 degrees” and rescue the little boys. Amazingly, neither toddler they removed from the house needed to be hospitalized.

Despite his quick-thinking heroism, Isiah, who said the home was with filled with “pitch black smoke, said, “I was just freaking out, trying to get out of the house as fast as I could with the baby.”

Jeremiah’s mother may have summed up the actions of her son best. “They did something most adults wouldn’t even think of doing,” she said. “He didn’t even think about it. He just did it.”
