A tourist is being called a hero after saving a Las Vegas valley woman from an apartment fire. Ralph and Sandra Harris live in Atlanta, Georgia but were visiting Las Vegas for Ralph's fraternity convention. The couple drove out to the Hoover Dam for some sightseeing but got lost on the way back. The wrong turn led the Harris' to drive by an apartment complex that had caught on fire.
Ralph pulled over in time to see a woman run outside onto her 2nd floor balcony. She was waving her hands and screaming for someone to help her. Ralph, an Army veteran, ran to the foot of the balcony and instructed the woman to come on the other side of the balcony and fall backwards into his arms; he was going to catch her. Once the woman was safely on the ground he ran into the flames on a ground level apartment to help an elderly woman evacuate.
