Now, this is good news!  A 25-year-old pizza delivery guy saved the lives of 5 children.  First he ran into a blazing inferno to save 4 children in the house.  When he returned, he was told there was still another child in the house.  So, he ran back inside and came out with the child!

Crime Online reports:

An Indiana pizza delivery man rescued four children and a teen from a burning home earlier this month and is now being honored for the heroic feat, which left him with severe injuries and hefty medical bills, USA Today reports.

Shortly after midnight on July 11, Nicholas Bostic was driving in a Lafayette neighborhood when he spotted flames shooting from a house. Bostic stopped and intended to dial 911, but he realized he left his phone at home, so the 25-year-old ran to the burning building and found an open back door.

Inside, the smoke stung his nostrils and eyes, but Bostic managed to call out warnings about the fire.

“I shouted, ‘Anybody here? Get out! Get out! Fire!’” Bostic told The Washington Post.

Bostic heard nothing in response and was about to leave, but he noticed the outline of someone at the top of the stairway with several children. That turned out to be 18-year-old Seionna Barrett, who was babysitting her three younger siblings and one of the children’s friends.

Bostic rushed up the steps and helped guide Barrett and three of the children, ages 1 to 13, out of the house and to safety on the street. But Barrett’s 6-year-old sister was still trapped inside, so Bostic, whose lungs and eyes were already burning, darted back into the home and searched for the girl.

The good Samaritan found the child, held her, broke a second-story window and jumped out using his body to shield the girl from the fall.

“I ran inside and looked under beds and closets, but I couldn’t find her,” Bostic told the Post. “But when I got to the stairs, I heard some faint crying.”

“I thought, ‘I don’t want to die here,’” he added.

Bostic then collapsed on the ground, but despite his injuries, he can be heard on the body camera footage asking about the condition of the little girl.

“Is the baby OK? Please tell me that baby is OK,” Bostic can be heard asking in the footage.

A police officer relays that the girl is all right and adds, “You did good, dude.”

Medics rushed Bostic to an Indianapolis hospital, according to 18 News. He was treated for severe injuries from smoke inhalation and the fire, including burns to multiple parts of his body and a significant laceration on his arm.

All told, four of the five home occupants had no injuries, and the 6-year-old girl suffered a minor cut to her foot because of the fall, but she was treated by medics at the scene.

Lafayette Police Department Lt. Randy Sherer called Bostic’s actions “courageous and heroic.”

“[Bostic’s] selflessness during this incident is inspiring. What he doesn’t understand is his actions weren’t ordinary, they were extraordinary,” Sherer told the Post. “He went down those stairs to save that little girl when he thought it was impossible just moments before . . . There’s only one way to define that: courageous and heroic.”

Take a look at body camera footage of the heroic rescue.

Listen to his interview on Fox.

As of today’s date, a GoFundMe account that was setup to help the injured Bostic has raised more than $300,000!

Well done, Nick! May God give us more men like yourself!
