PLN 23

In the article "Wow! Heros exist!" from CNN video on I found this video very moving. It shows two brothers who are also firefighters and a woman whose car flipped and caught on fire after hitting a tree. The firefighters break the windshield and pull the women out and get one of the children out but the other child has his seatbelt on and can’t get out. Some one brings out a garden hose and another person brings out a pocket knife so they can cut the seatbelt. As soon as they get the second child out of the car they hear a loud bang and the fire gets bigger. I think this was some very quick thinking from the firefighters and the neighbors in the area around the crash. If it weren’t for them then we would be three people shorter then before.


  1. That is a really a heroic story. It's incredible what people will do for others sometimes. Nice post Parker.

  2. It's comforting to know that there are still heroes out there who are willing to risk their lives in order to save others. It's also strange how people can still react so well with quick thinking, even under this amount of pressure! Good post!
