    My Friend Saves Someones Life

    My friend in Rochester MN spotted a fire while he was rolllerblading near 7 PM. He saw the whole place in flames so he did the right thing by getting his dad to call 911 and help rescue a older man from the fire in the house. They spotted the man near the doorway where it the fire was close too and they pulled the charred 93 year old man from the fire. He weighed about 200 pounds and was quite tall. They pulled him from the fire and waited for the fire department after they heard screams from a woman upstairs. He then told the firefighters to save the 87 year old woman who was the wife of the 93 year old man. The 93 year old man died the next day and the 87 year old is listed in critical condition at one of the best hospitals in america (Mayo Clinic). They found out the cause of the fire a day later because it was evident it was caused by the old man smoking a pipe. The whole place caught on fire and caused $70,000 worth of damage. The question I'm asking is how does a guy who smokes makes it to 93 years old. Well thanks to my friends efforts atleast one person was saved. RIP. My friend was on the front of the Post Bulletin paper thanks to his intellegence and bravery to go into the fire and risk his life.

    Because 2nd hand smoke is worse for you. He was healthier because he was smoking 1st hand. :wink:

    My sister Betsy should be reporting that on channel 10 news in Rochester.

    I feel bad for the man's family but smoking is one of the stupidest habits you can have.

    Men in glass houses should not throw stones.

    e.g. only those with no bad habits should talk!

    I thought that way once myself. 12 years at 2 packs a day.

    But, I grew up and kicked the habit.

    Someday you will be a big boy too. :lol:
