One Louisville man is being hailed as a hero for saving his fiance’s two children from an apartment fire – he is the epitome of what makes a hero. Mike Dickerson Junior dropped his fiance’s two small children (one his biological child and one simply a child he loved) from an upper story apartment building window before succumbing to the fire himself. There are complete details on the touching story on the Wave3 Website.
This heartbreakingly heroic story is a reminder, whether it is fire safety month or not, that every family should have a fire escape plan and every parent should review fire safety rules with their children.
