Ousmane Ndoye came to America for opportunity. But, this taxi cab driver never thought he’d have the opportunity to give the important gift of his life.

“I’m seeing flames coming all over this house,” said Ndoye, a driver for Denver Yellow Cab. “(I hear) there’s people in the house. I say ‘what?'”

That’s when he says he noticed flames shooting out of a home across the street with an elderly woman panicked outside.

“She was screaming, ‘My daughter, she’s inside! My daughter!” said Ndoye.

Neighbors say Ora Glover lives with her disabled daughter, a middle-aged woman who uses a wheelchair. Ndoye says she was trying to get out of the house but was stuck in the doorway trying to crawl out of the burning home.

At first, Ndoye’s supervisor Randy Jensen says he didn’t even tell anybody about his heroics.

“And, he brings in this bucket and he wants us to collect donations for that family,” said Jensen, general manager of Denver Yellow Cab. “This is above and beyond.”

Some people just have good hearts.I think it is fair to say that this man is definitely one of those people.
