Teens Rushed Into The Neighbor’s House To Rescue The Old Woman.

In Tulsa, Oklahoma, 90-year-old Catherine Ritchie was in her bathroom and she was just getting ready for bed when she turned around and was horrified. Her bed was on fire. She ran over and tried to put the fire out, but it was no use. The smoke got heavy fast. And she couldn’t even see to get out of her room.

She quickly dialed 911 and hit her emergency call button. She was in a very bad situation. But her neighbors were not about to let her perish in that blaze. And those neighbors were teen-agers. All four of them.

All of the boys were at a neighboring home when they smelled something burning. Then they heard Catherine’s alarm go off. So they all rushed to her house, got through the back door and, through thick smoke, managed to find Catherine. They were all then able to get out of the house safely.

Catherine’s daughter, Missy, wrote an open letter to the teens. It said: “Kids who are told about all the things they aren’t old enough to do saved the life of the most precious and beloved woman we know. Courageous young men. Young men who risked their own lives, their own safety, perhaps their good standing with their parents who might have chosen for them to do otherwise, and they carried my mother out of her burning home into the street, where firetrucks and ambulances would soon arrive.

Thank you for not allowing this to be the tragic end to our mother’s amazing life. Thank you for staying with her, hugging her, and helping her feel less alone until we could get to her. Thank you for being the kind of young men who thought about another person above yourselves.”
