Firefighters from Chicago called 5-year-old Jayden Espinoza a real hero. Thanks to his quick wit and quickness, the boy was able to warn the residents of the house about the fire and saved 13 people from death.
The fire in one of the houses, located in the suburbs of Chicago, began early in the morning on July 27. For some unknown reason, the fire alarm did not work, and the residents of the house slept, unaware of the danger that threatened them. The only one who did not sleep was little Jayden. The day before, the boy, along with his two sisters, came to visit his aunt and, apparently, could not fall asleep soundly in a 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?
