8-Year-Old Dies Rescuing 6 Relatives from Blazing Mobile Home
Tyler Doohan, 8, ran back into the burning mobile home of his relatives in Penfield, NY to try to rescue his disable grandfather, but after rescuing six people, he and his grandfather succumbed to fire and smoke. The boy noticed a fire around 4:45 a.m. and woke six relatives, including two children, to get out of the trailer. He ran back in, against his aunt's protests, to try to help his grandfather. Fire officials said it was apparent that the boy was trying to lift his grandfather from the bed. YouCaring.com has managed to raise more than $28,000 as of Wednesday for Tyler's funeral and family. The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
