2 Brave Neighbors Carry Elderly Woman From Burning Home

These neighbors are heroes because of their quick thinking in a dramatic home fire rescue.

This video isn’t for the faint of heart as it captured footage of two brave neighbors carrying an elderly woman from her burning home. And the voice you can hear on the video--that’s Lariana Garvis who organized the rescue. She was on her way home from an outing at the park with her two sons in the car.

As she turned down her street, she immediately saw that the home of one of her neighbors was on fire. Lariana knew the elderly woman in late 90’s, and frail. She saw the size of the fire and knew there was no way her neighbor could get out on her own.

As the house began to go up in flames Lariana called for help and then flagged down other neighbors by the name of Jay and Tom Kehoe. The men broke down the door as Lariana captured the dramatic rescue on video.

Seconds later, Jay and Tom carried out the woman who was still in her favorite teal chair. The men chose to use the chair as a stretcher to prevent the elderly woman from any more injuries or bruising.

The video captures broken windows that exploded from the heat of the fire and smoke billowing into the sky. The homeowner’s off-white sweater was singed from flames that had crept into the living room. As she was being carried out, Lariana, Jay, and Tom reassured her they would go back and get her precious dog who had been left behind.

Thank God for these three good samaritans who were in the right place at the right time. They saved not one, but two lives. These neighbors were definitely God’s angels! They were willing to lay down their lives for someone who wasn’t able to save herself.

“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends,” John 15:13
