TMSG: Amazon Driver Saves Elderly Man From Burning Home

Amazon delivery driver Sean Campbell is being praised as a hero after he had to help someone during his route.

He learned there was trouble outside a home in New Smyrna Beach, Florida just down the street from where he was completing a delivery route. After dropping his packages, Campbell rushed to the home. He heard screaming and discovered that a fire had broken out in the garage.

Campbell learned that an elderly woman was able to escape the residence, thanks to a neighbor. However, an elderly man remained trapped inside.

That's when Campbell jumped into action, rushing toward the burning home and breaking down the front door to get the elderly man out. Campbell said the man was moving slow, but trying to move as fast as he could. He told WESH, "He was trying to grab his walker. I was like 'No, we got to move, you've got to see another day!'" The pair eventually made their way out of the blaze safely, and local firefighters were able to rescue the family dog shortly after.

Amazon spokesperson Deborah Bass shared that they're proud of Campbell, "We love hearing stories about drivers being everyday heroes for our customers and the communities they serve. Everyone at Amazon was touched by Sean going above and beyond to help someone in need, and we’re excited to celebrate and thank him for his great efforts."
