Incredible rescue video captured shows neighbor Quinn Parrish pull a woman out of her burning apartment in Mobile (Alabama) Wednesday. The video has been shared thousands of times on social media. Unfortunately, it has prompted many keyboard warrior clowns to blast a Mobile firefighter who is seen in the video adjusting his gear as Parrish sprang into action. Now, Mobile Fire-Rescue is responding to the criticism and explaining what happened. “He was masking up, turning on his air bottle and searching for his regulator to go on air so that he could actually go in and get her out,” said Mobile Fire-Rescue spokesperson Steven Millhouse.
Millhouse says the firefighter attempted to pull her out but couldn’t. He says the woman, in her distress, knocked the firefighter’s mask off. Millhouse says the firefighter was making gear adjustments and preparing to go into the flames to rescue her.
