According to CNN, 7-year-old Eli Davidson saved his baby sister’s life when he climbed through a window into her room to rescue her from a house fire that burned their family home to the ground. The family rushed out of the house with their two boys, but 22-month-old Erin was still in her room. With the house engulfed in flames, there was no way to get to her room, but Eli was able to get in through a window.
“The smoke and fire was so thick there was no way I could get to her. We went outside to get to her from the window, but there was nothing for me to stand on to reach up there. So I picked up Eli, who went through the window and was able to grab her from her crib.
We couldn’t be more proud of Eli… he did something a grown man wouldn’t do.”
A Go Fund Me has been started for the family, who lost everything in the fire. And ironically enough, both Chris and Nicole Davison (the parents) are former firefighters. The Davidsons have also fostered over 34 children in their lifetime, including our hero Eli.
“We lost everything that we have ever had. Our entire lives were in that home. Our three cars were also damaged in the fire.”
Man 2020 just won’t quit, will it? But thankfully, because our young hero Eli, they were all able to make it out of the house safely.
