A Massachusetts woman is calling Lt. Gov. Tim Murray a hero for helping her two grandchildren to safety after the minivan in which they were riding caught fire.
Murray was driving Tuesday evening in Worcester, Massachusetts, where he lives, according to a statement from the governor’s office.
“[He] noticed a parked minivan with a tire on fire. The Lt. Governor pulled over, dialed 911, and as he was doing so, heard a nearby individual scream that there were children in the vehicle,” according to the statement. “The Lt. Governor approached the vehicle and helped the children get out safely to their grandmother, who was nearby.”
Firefighters extinguished the fire.
“The Lt. Governor is happy that everyone is safe,” the statement said.
The only way to top that is something involving puppies.
