Teens Skipping Class Save Elderly Woman From Burning House

A group of California teenagers were hailed as heroes after they rescued a 94-year-old woman from her burning home.

The California High School seniors were skipping class around 10 a.m. on Monday to get something to eat when they saw smoke. When they drove up to the burning house, they saw Dianna Davis outside the garage yelling for help.

Davis was trying to unravel the water hose and cried out that her elderly mother was stuck in the house.

“We both had the same instinct,” Peter Kravariotis, one of the boys, said. “Just go in the house, so we did.”

The boys managed to guide the woman out of the house along with her dog, though the woman is currently in critical condition.

“(I am) exceptionally proud of the three young men who would reach out and do something like that,” California High School Principal Mark Corti said,” because they could’ve easily kept walking.”

The elderly woman was taken to a burn center in San Francisco where she is currently receiving treatment.
