An Amazon delivery driver is being hailed as a hero after he rushed into a burning building to save an elderly man trapped inside. 23-year-old Sean Campbell was delivering packages in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, when he heard a woman screaming. Campbell ran down the street and saw a house was on fire.
Campbell busted down the front door and found the confused man standing in the kitchen.
"He was in the kitchen, you know, with his walker just standing there. 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 said.
Campbell helped the man outside, where he was reunited with his wife, who was rescued from the burning home by a neighbor. Firefighters also managed to save the family's dog from the fire, which started in the garage and quickly engulfed the entire house.
The elderly couple's son praised Campbell for risking his life by running into the burning house.
