    Fearcrusher: Tyler Taylor
    6-Year-Old Boy Rescued Family From Flames

    By Thomas Francis

    It’s common for kids to say that they want to be firefighters when they grow up. But there are a few uncommon children with the poise and courage to save lives in a fire -- even before they’re done being kids.


    Image credit: Fox4kc.comLast week a 10-year-old Kansas City, Kan., boy named Dorian Harris had awakened early to watch Saturday morning cartoons. When he saw smoke coming from the door, the 5th grade boy woke his parents and big brother just in time for the family to escape the quick-spreading fire by crawling out of a first floor window. WDAF-TV reports that Dorian’s heroics are the reason the family escaped without major injuries.

    An even younger boy, 7-year-old Tarin Dugan, was the first to spot a fire that ignited within his family’s 7-bedroom home in Reading, Pa. earlier this month. The boy was too shy to talk about what happened to a TV news crew from local WFMZ, but on the day of it happened, he shouted “Fire!” loud enough to alert his mother and two brothers, who fled the home before flames could trap them.

    But there is a 6-year-old boy from Apopka, Fla., whose heroics are the most amazing of all. Two weeks ago, Tyler Taylor woke up in the middle of the night because he smelled smoke. As he explained to a Local 6 TV news crew, he then woke up his grandmother.

    Tyler’s grandmother escaped out the home’s back door, but in the chaos, Tyler realized that his older brother was still in the home. So he went back into the burning house, found his brother and led him to safety.

    The Orlando Sentinel reports that Tyler’s grand ambition is to become a professional football player -- and if he can run around tacklers the way he runs around flames, he just might have what it takes. For the time being, he’ll settle for the spoils of a hero: celebratory cake and ice cream from the local Golden Corral.

    Yet they entered a burning structure without proper training, experience, manpower, and equipment.

    All the things you believe should be in place before entry is made.

    Looks like six year old understands the job better than you.

    It was their home.

    Their homes were on fire, ie., burning structures. Are you that (expletive) obtuse? Apparently you are.

    Aha. A master of the obvious.

    Regardless, a six year old performed an operation you've stated that you won't for any number of reasons.

    Actually most fire safe educators, as every firesafety curriculum that I'm aware of, teach children never to re-enter a burning structure.

    There's a reason ... Most of the time it does not turn out very well.

    That lesson typically emphasizes not re-entering in order to get their pet, toys or other possessions, not another family member.

    No.

    The lesson teaches children not to re-enter for any reason.

    They do not have the life experience, fire awareness or skills to cope with the environment.

    They are taught to get out right away and not wait for parents or siblings.

    Which did not happen in this case.

    A six year old entered a burning a structure and affected a rescue. Something you've stated repeated you wouldn't do until any number of factors are present.

    Apparently this six year old knew enough to get the job done. Something that escapes you.

    Last I knew children were not expected to do the job

    You really think that it was a good idea for a 6-year old to reenter a burning structure?
