Amazon delivery driver, Sean Campbell was in the New Smyrna Beach area when he heard screams from a house there. He dropped his packages and ran toward the inferno. “I heard the screaming… and when you hear something like that you have to go to it,” he said.

The 23-year-old tore opened the front door and found the man standing with his walker in the kitchen, “I don’t think he really knew what was going on. I was like ‘Sir, c’mon. I need to help you. C’mon, let’s get out,’” Campbell recalled. “He was trying to grab his walker. I was like no, we got to move.”

The blaze had apparently broken out in the garage and spread to the house. An elderly woman was able to get out with the help of a neighbor, but her husband still remained inside. The couple’s son, Tim West said, Campbell had acted heroically, “It was fantastic that he was both here and able to go inside — and brave enough to go inside. We really appreciate that” West said. Firefighters saved the couple’s dog, they’re staying with a relative nearby after their home was badly damaged.

Verse of the Day

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. — Romans 5:6-8 (NIV)
