Nice feel good story. Glad she was there to save him.

We had a 67 year old lady burn to death here on the Cape a few days ago. Her sleeve caught fire as she was cooking dinner and it engulfed her whole body. She ran outside screaming for help and a neighbor heard her and rushed to her aide, but it was too late. Another neighbor saved her 64 year old cerebal palsy brother from the house though. They found her cat just 2 days ago.

What a nice story. Similar things probably happen a lot but we never hear about them

CM, your neighbor must have been wearing clothing of a highly flammable fabric. I thought those kinds of fibers were illegal now since so many people have been seriously injured or killed over the years.

I believe you're thinking of jammies for kids. If the government starts regulating what fabric is made out of, I'm going to go postal. I'm torqued off enough about these retarded flourescent lightbulbs. Jackwagons. I hate flourescent lights.
