Mayor Booker Recounts Fire Rescue: I'm No Hero
A day after he defied his security detail and ran into a burning house to save a woman's life, Newark Mayor Cory Booker says he's a good neighbor, not a superhero. The mayor of New Jersey's largest city was treated and released from the hospital after suffering smoke inhalation and second-degree burns on his hands Thursday night.With a bandage around the thumb and first finger of his right hand, Booker said he felt terror, not bravery as he dashed through the flames with the woman over his shoulder. Though many are hailing him as a hero, he said he did what anyone would have done.
wow, holy crap. This guy is impressive. Although I don't agree with much of his politics, this guy is a rock star.
