NEW YORK — A homeless man from the Bronx named Jeffrey Richards saved a 2-year-old and a 5-year-old from a burning house by climbing the building and pulling them down.

The fire would injure 10 firefighters and caused a 2-alarm-blaze.

The New York Daily New reports:

A homeless man climbed onto the awning of a neighboring building and helped grab a child from a second-story window.

“I climbed the porch and got up on the other awning,” said Jeffrey Richards, 40. “I had one kid in my arms and then I dropped him down to the other guy below.”
