The heart-thumping footage below shows the dramatic rescue of an elderly man, who was stuck inside his burning house in Fresno, California.
At first, bystanders only watched the house burn because they do not know what to do. When they knew that the father of a woman was still trapped inside, they panicked.
Suddenly, a hero jumped into the scene. He looked for ways to get inside the house. He fearlessly went through the flames and carried the elderly man onto his shoulders to safety. Although his name is unknown, his brave act of risking his life to save others will always be remembered.
Now, he is considered a hero. After what he did, the unidentified stranger walked away, without saying anything to the people he helped.
Robert Wells, the man who was rescued, shared with KFSN-TV that two people tried to help him. He said, “I wasn’t going fast enough, so a guy picked me up and carried me out there. He was kind of in a half a run. Thank you from the bottom of my heart that I made it out”.
