Good Samaritan Saves Life of an Elderly Woman

LNT,

A man saved the life of an elderly woman as he pulled her out of a burning house at 11th and 145th East Avenue. The incident happened on Friday.

When the fire started and smoke was coming out of the house, Naomi Peugh was in her bed. The smoke coming out of her house alarmed the neighbors. Her son, who lives in the neighborhood, called 911.

Meanwhile, the people living next to her and down the street, came to her rescue. When the neighbors went inside her house, they found her in her bed. As she is confined to a wheelchair, she couldn’t move around a lot.

One of the neighbors who had gone inside to help her, Gary Lowry said, “I went inside and got her out of the bed and one her wheelchair. And then got her. The door was getting very hot and the smoke was filling the entire house. As long as she’s OK, that’s all that matters.”

Once, she was out of the house, she was very worried about her dog. Her dog was still inside the house. The firefighters, who had reached the scene just after Peugh was rescued, went inside and got her dog.

Peugh said that she never feared for her life, even as the smoke started filling the house. She said that God had the right people living next to her to help her. Peugh said, “It makes me feel very, so very small, that people care that much. Good neighbors. You can’t find them everyplace, praise God I’ve got them here.”
