 What a Brave Young Man!

 
Lin Tao is 20 years old. He was brave enough to save his neighbour from a fire.
 
On 10 May, Lin Tao was at home alone. Suddenly, he heard someone shouting “Fire! Fire! Help!” He ran outside and saw a lot of smoke from next door. He went in and found his neighbour, the 79-year-old Mrs Sun, in the kitchen. Her left leg was badly hurt and she could not get out.
 
Lin Tao quickly ran to Mrs Sun's bathroom. He poured water over his clothes to protect himself. Then he rushed into the kitchen. There was heavy smoke and the fire was very hot. He put a wet blanket over Mrs Sun and helped her out. Later some firemen came and put out the fire.
 
The fire burnt Lin Tao's arms, neck and face. He was in hospital for two weeks. Many people visited him and gave him flowers and presents. “How brave you are!” they said. “Were you afraid at that moment?”
 
“Yes, a little,” Lin Tao nodded, “but I have little time to think about it. Mrs Sun needed my help.”
 
“Fire is very dangerous. We should be careful with it,” he also said.
