Two men come to the rescue, using various tools and a fire extinguisher in order to save the children trapped inside.
It takes immense courage to put one's life at risk in order to save another's. These brave individuals displayed unwavering determination as they rushed to rescue a child trapped in a blazing house. In that critical moment, their sole focus was the safety of the child and nothing else seemed to matter. In a video posted on Twitter by @GoodNewsCorres1, a child is seen stuck on a balcony of a particular floor of an apartment and black smoke is coming out of the building. A man gets onto a ladder and reaches the child and realizes that the balcony is closed from every side and he requires something to break it open.
Soon another man comes up and brings a tool to break the steel bars. However, that doesn't turn out to be much of a help. He is passed another tool that the man uses to push the steel bars to make space for the child. He is finally able to use that to weaken the steel bars on one side and another man uses the fire extinguisher in the same place.
Finally, the steel bars break and the men are able to pull out the child from the fire which seems to be spreading fast. It is a relief to see the child being rescued from such a dangerous situation. The fire took place in Zhejiang, Guangdong in China. The whereabouts of the child or the building where the fire took place are unknown.
The video is captioned, "Heroes rescue a child from a burning apartment." It has already garnered over 78k views on Twitter. Many in the comments section on the social platform were appreciative of the men who helped the child. @willriddle1 commented, "This is the most stressful 'hero saves' video I've ever seen." @Estelle_Flee expressed, "Gawd that was a shocker. Hope nobody else was inside." @LizHayesGallagh said, "Omg, not a moment too soon!"

In another similar situation, a homeless man rescued a family of three and their two dogs from a devastating fire that took place in their apartment. Joe Hollins was the person who came to their rescue. "All I see is a lady pull open the window and she's screaming 'Please help me, please help me,'" Hollins said. He lives with his wife around the family's apartment. Hollins asked the mother, Claudia Jimenez to drop her daughters and he tried to catch them.
His name is Joe Hollins. He’s homeless. He’s jobless. And he’s an American hero. https://t.co/khR101Rfj8— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) May 21, 2023
After getting a hold of them, he went ahead with saving the dogs and then Jimenez. "She didn't want to come at first," Hollins said of the woman. "She was scared she was going to fall. I was like, 'I got you. Don't worry.'" Talking about Hollins, Jiminez said, "I will forever be thankful to him, you know? Like I said, to me, he was an angel. Because of him, we're here, we're alive, and my daughters are safe." However, he didn't want any credit for what he did and said that anyone would have done the same. "Those are children," he explained.
