An 8-year old boy heroically saved six members of his family from an inferno that engulfed their mobile home while they slept … but died while trying to save two others.
According to law enforcement sources and fire fighters in Penfield, New York, Tyler Doohan was woken up by the fire which was burning the blanket of his sleeping 4-year old cousin. He then woke six of his relatives who all made it outside.
But Tyler ran back to rescue his disabled grandfather and uncle who were still inside … but he didn’t make it: He died along with them in the fire.
Tyler has been declared a hero by firefighters, who credited him for the lives of his relatives who escaped with minor injuries.
