    Democrat Timothy P. Murray rescues children from burning van

    Mass. lieutenant governor rescues children from burning van - Yahoo! News

    Tim Murray, the lieutenant governor of Massachusetts, was driving through Worcester with his wife and two children last night when he spotted smoke coming from a parked minivan. Immediately, he pulled over and sprang into action.

    According to The Boston Globe, Murray was calling 911 when he heard someone shout that children were inside the burning vehicle. He ran to the minivan, pulled the children out and took them to their grandmother, who was standing nearby.

    The unidentified woman, who was driving the minivan before the left front tire burst into flames, nearly attacked Murray during the rescue attempt.

    "She told me 'I didn't know if you were trying to take the kids or take the car. I was about to punch you,'" Murray said in the Worcester Telegram & Gazette. Murray then downplayed his heroic role, saying he did "pretty much what anyone else would have done if they had come upon it."

    Emergency personnel soon arrived on the scene and extinguished the flames, The Associated Press reported.

    This is the second time Murray has been hailed for assisting people in need. In April 2009, he helped a woman out of her car after she suffered a medical emergency on the interstate and crashed into three vehicles and a piece of construction equipment. He then stayed with the ailing driver until help arrived, WHDH.com reported.
    It is important to note that if this had been a Republican, they would have shot the van until it stopped burning.

    The most interesting thing about this article was the driver who almost attacked him for possibly taking the car. Why would someone want to steal a burning vehicle?
    Most importantly if your kids are in a burning van why wouldn't you risk all to save them?

    Yeah - that caught me dead-faced.

    What the HELL is wrong with people?

    Grandmother: on the side of the road just watching.
    Mother: Going to attack someone who's rushing to assist.

    Jesh man - praise him for his quick action and willingness to do what Mom and Grandmother WEREN'T doing.

    Remember when the fox got into the house last year and attacked two babies while they were sleeping? I said those parents deserved the 'worst parent of the year award'

    Well - here's a Mom and a Grandmother who deserve that award . . . getting upset that someoen was trying to help - and standing around with their thumb up their butt.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
