Guts, but no glory needed.
Geez, if I had an occasion to do something heroic, and accomplished it, I would have nooooo problem with my “15 minutes of fame”! Who wouldn’t?
Well, some “mystery man” in Fresno, California appeared out of nowhere, calmly walked into a burning building, came out carrying the rescued elderly man, and then, “meh”, walked off to get a latte or something!
“As I got out of the car, this woman came up with this baby and said, ‘My dad is in there! My dad is in there!’ I didn’t know what to do. I felt so helpless,” Beth Lederach, who recorded the footage of the successful rescue, told the Fresno Bee.
Lederach said the hero seemed to come from nowhere.
“He just calmly walked right in there and then came walking right back out with this guy,” Lederach told the newspaper.
The video shows the man walk into the smoke and flames. At one point, a crash or explosion sends other would-be rescuers fleeing, but not the hero, who emerges from the blaze with the 73-year-old man draped over his shoulder.
Thank you “mystery” man for risking your own life to save someone’s daddy that you didn’t even know!
