An Indiana pizza delivery man saved five from a burning house


, 25, an Indiana pizza delivery man, ran into a burning two-story house in Lafayette and saved five people, including a 6-year-old girl he jumped out of a second-floor window. Once in the house in flames he searched the rooms, even looking under the beds. He described it as so black that he couldn’t see anything in font of him. He suffered serious injuries but says he’s no hero. Bostic suffered smoke inhalation in addition to an arm injury and other wounds. He was airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital and discharged two days later. A GoFundMe page set up for Bostic to help pay his hospital and medical bills had raised more than $470,000 by Wednesday afternoon.


“He’s a real hero, and my daughter’s a real hero for waking the kids up. I don’t like to think about what might have happened if Nick hadn’t shown up. I’m grateful beyond words,” David Barrett, the four saved siblings’ father, an assistant principal at Tecumseh Junior High School, told. “If opportunity came again and I had to do it, I would do it,” Bostic, 25, told media. A statement from police said Bostic has “impressed many with his courage, tenacity, and steadfast calmness.”Police also said the fire remains under investigation.
