Hero Garbage Collector Saves Couple From House Fire


In this scary video provided by the Ceres, Ca Fire Department, a home can be seen fully engulfed. Thankfully, the elderly couple that lived in the home were rescued by a garbage collector named Patrick Lebow.

Lebow was on his normal route when he saw the home on fire, and knew he needed to act. He kicked in the door, and brought the couple out to safety.

Ceres Fire Chief Kevin Wise told FOX40 news

“He found a gentleman that was inside that looked possibly a little dazed and confused. He helped that gentlemen out of the house... And then he knew that there was somebody else in the house. So we went back looking again for his wife and he located the wife in the backyard and helped her out of the house also.”

Lebow declined to do an on-camera interview but says he did not do anything special, and told FOX40 news he was “just in the right place, at the right time.”
