INTERNATIONAL: Pensylvanian boy dies trying to save father from house fire

sanford8n-1-webNEW YORK DAILY NEWS – A 12-year-old boy died trying to save his father from their burning home in Pennsylvania.

Firefighters found Sanford Harling III, whom his family called “Man Man,” unconscious and face down under a kitchen table after the brave son rushed back inside his Norristown home to help his father escape, according to WPVI-TV.

Unbeknownst to Sanford, the boy’s father already leaped to safety from a second-floor window before the flames engulfed the rest of their home just before 9 a.m. Friday.

“Not too many grown men would run back in after their family member,” said Percy Jones III, a board member for the Norristown Youth Eagles for whom Sanford played football. “He went back in without thinking about it.”

“I didn’t expect anything less from him,” Sanford told WPVI-TV.
