Chicago fire department called five-year-old Jayden Espinosa a real hero. Thanks to his intelligence and agility, the boy was able to warn the residents of the house about the fire and saved 13 people from death.
A fire at a house in a Chicago suburb broke out in the early hours of July 27. For some unknown reason, the fire alarm didn’t go off, and the residents were asleep, unaware of the danger. The only one awake was little Jayden Espinosa. The day before, the boy and his two sisters had come to visit his aunt and, apparently, had not been able to sleep well in the new place.
Whatever it was, but Jayden got out of bed, dressed and went out into the yard.” And immediately I saw that smoke was pouring from the windows of the second floor and flames was escaping”. It is simply amazing that a very small child was not at a loss, but managed to make the most correct decision. He returned to the house and woke up all the relatives, who continued to enjoy their pre-morning sleep.
Moreover, making a rustle among his own, Jayden rushed to the neighbors and informed them about the fire. In a matter of minutes, all 13 residents were able to quickly pack up and run out into the street. And only thanks to this baby they survived, because the house, despite the efforts of firefighters, burned to the ground.
Police are currently investigating the cause of the fire and the fire alarm. And, the tenants were left homeless and the property turned to the Red Cross and other charitable organizations with a request for help. “We lost everything we had. Nevertheless, we are all alive and well. And we do not get tired of thanking Jayden for this, ”said one of the victims.
Upon learning that her children and other relatives were almost burned alive, the boy’s mother, Tracy Espinoza, was horrified. And, having calmed down a little, she said that she considered it a divine providence that her son woke up so early and woke the others.
Jayden himself, when asked by journalists, how he guessed to raise the alarm, smiled and said:
“Because I’m very smart!”
And it’s just impossible to disagree with that, isn’t it?
