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.
