Chris Poe who is an Iraq veteran, was driving with his family when he saw a house on fire and ran inside to check if anyone was there. He said “The most logical thing was to just see if anybody was still inside the house, so you just do that.”
He found two children inside the house, an 8 year-old boy and a 14 year-old girl. The 14 year-old girl was in the basement unaware of her house being on fire. Chris took them both to safety, as their father Ian Sandefer arrived back from buying his children breakfast. He was shocked and very thankful that the veteran saved his children’s lives.
Chris’s instincts told him the right thing, and he took action. He is truly a hero!
