Many homeowners have upgraded to smart video doorbells so they can see who is coming to the door. These cameras may be able to capture very unexpected sightings.
But recent stories show how they can be used to save lives after good Samaritans have contacted their families to warn them that their homes are on fire-and they are in it. Allowed the fur trapped in to save a friend.
According to KYMA, Courtney Polito and her husband Tony were out of town when a fire broke out at their home in Scotts Valley, California. No one was at home, so only passers-by jogging by the house noticed it.
A stranger rang the family video doorbell. He was able to contact them through a video feed while they weren’t at home.
This call turned out to be life-saving. It turns out that family pets (two dachshunds, a rabbit and a cat) were in the house.
Jogger went forward to become a hero and offered to go inside and take all of them out. The family gave him their home code and he ran inside.
The homeowner couldn’t believe his friendliness: “You need to be someone so special to enter the burning house to save the animals,” Tony told KYMA.
Jogger took the animal unharmed and soon the fire brigade arrived and put out the fire.
The fire damaged the garage and destroyed Christmas gifts, but bystanders helped prevent a complete disaster by rescuing the animals and alerting the fire department at the right time.
“The fire department said the house would be gone in 10 minutes,” Courtney Polito said.
But despite his life-saving heroism, the jogger has remained an anonymous stranger to the family, despite their attempts to thank him.
That was a rare case. Andrew Rofranco, head of the Scotts Valley Battalion, told KYMA that it was the first time someone had warned his family of a house fire through the ring.
Still, despite his life-saving heroism, Jogger remained an anonymous stranger to his family, despite trying to thank him.
“I want to hug him. I’ll take him to lunch. I’ll bring him dinner. I don’t know … I want to thank him very much and let him know how grateful we are. “Courtney said.
“My childrens, my husband, if we lost our pets, we will be destroyed, not to mention our home.”
Thanks to this good Samaritan who saved the lives of their pets and family’s home!
