3 Electricians Save 3 Kids From Burning Bronx Apartment

Kids Remain In Critical Condition At Local Hospital

NEW YORK (CBS 2) – Three electricians saved three children from a raging apartment fire in the Bronx.

The electricians were driving by 228th Street in the Wakefield section of the Bronx where they saw huge flames bursting out of a fourth floor window where three children were trapped.

They couldn’t climb inside so the building super grabbed a blanket and the men held it as the children jumped to safety.

“My friend saw a foot out the window and my boss made us stop,” rescuer Muhammed Charles said.

The men told the children to jump and caught each one.

When told of the prospects of being called a hero, rescuer John Morille denied it.

“I’m not. I was just at the right place at the right time,” he said.

The children, ages 4, 6 and 7, were taken from the scene in critical condition.

    what is a hero? Someone we look up to, A person we honor for their actions beyond what the avrage person would do. Most people freeze up or panic when an emergency strikes. they get startled, and fail to act. A Hero is someone in the right place at the right time who keeps their cool and does what needs to be done. Thats these four gentelmen. They should be honored by all of us. True Heros.

      true, but remember that unlike pizza, it is not always to have crack delivered.

    I know that there are at least TEN righteous men living in NYC, Otherwise,something much worse than 9/11 would have happened a long time ago.
