School bus crew saves woman from burning house [Video]

“I thank God that I was able to get the lady out of the house.” said Bobbie Wright, who spends most of her time helping people. She seats and watches over physically challenged kids on the school bus and when she and her co-worker passed by a home on fire, they had to help save a life.

“I told Bobbie, I said Bobbie she’s trying to get out, there’s someone trapped inside and then Bobbie said ‘Open the door, let me out’ and I opened the door and she RAN out.” said bus driver Stephanie Bayless.

Firefighters believe the fire probably started in the living room area where 65-year-old Jimmy Wayne McKnight was bedridden in a hospital bed.

His caregiver Louise Pinkston heard the smoke alarm and told firefighters what happened next. “She attempted to go to the living room area where Mr. McKnight was at and it’s my understanding at that point she could not get to him or get him out” said Horn Lake Fire Chief David Linville.

Pinkston’s attempts at putting out the fire also failed. The only thing she could do was escape.

When Firefighters arrived they found smoke pouring form over opening of the house, and flames shooting out the living room and kitchen windows.

Ms. Pinkston managed to get to the other end of the house and out a small bathroom window.

That’s when Wright and Bayless passed by, and jumped into action. “She was hollering and so she was trying to lift the window up but she couldn’t get it up so I lift the window up, pushed the window up and got her out the fire,” explained Wright.

Wright herself tried to put out the fire, first by breaking a front window with an landscape timber, then with a garden hose.

Ms. Pinkston suffered heavy smoke inhilation, singed hair and minor burns.

As to why she felt compelled to help, Wright says the answer is simple. “I would want someone to do that for me or do that for my family if something like that happened, so that’s what I did, I just react.” she smiled.
