A father in the U.K. woke up early to get his three-year-old son a glass of milk and then saved seven people from a fire. Aaron Gray spotted the blaze at his neighbor’s home from his window at five in the morning and immediately called emergency services, then rushed to rescue them.
Everyone was asleep at the neighbor’s house, so Gray had a tough time waking them up, but after kicking, punching and banging the door and windows, they heard him. He was able to get the two women and five kids out safely and no one was hurt. And he made it in the nick of time as minutes later, their house was engulfed in flames.
The good Samaritan had never spoken to these neighbors before and they’re expressing their gratitude now. Gray says, “If I’d left it five minutes later, as the fire service said, I think we’d be looking at a different outcome.”
